Frances Justine Post’s Beast (Augury Books, 2014) has received a micro-review in the latest edition of The Boston Review. Kay Cosgrove, poetry editor at Gulf Coast, commented on Beast‘s aesthetic approach and thematic development:

Though the collection’s narrative arc is familiar… the phrasing Post uses to convey it is dazzling, dangerous, visceral, and new… The poems dismantle the binaries of you and me, then and now, self and other, and singular and plural as they investigate, almost obsessively, how experience uproots and shapes us.”

The September/October issue is now available on newsstands. Additionally, each article from the current issue will soon be available to read online. Check back at The Boston Review’s site for updates.

Motionpoems is an organization that brings video artists and publishing companies together to create video shorts of poetry, aptly dubbed “motionpoems.” Started by Angella Kassube and Todd Boss, animator/producer and poet, respectively, Motionpoems has gone on to partner with such companies as Wave Books, Graywolf Press, McSweeney’s, and several others to bring poetry into a new medium. Following a premiere at the Walker Art Center in St. Paul, Minnesota, the fifth season of motionpoems is currently being released via Motionpoems’ subscription. Augury Books has the honor of being able to preview one of season five’s poems before it is sent out! View Matthew Zapruder’s “Albert Einstein,” adapted by John Akre, below:

In addition to a new season of work, Motionpoems and Todd Boss recently produced “Arrivals & Departures at St. Paul’s Union Depot,” a video-art installation on the Union Depot building in St. Paul, set to premiere October 10-12 at the St. Paul Art Crawl. Motionpoems will soon be taking submissions from U.S. poets for next year’s installation! Check back at the “Arrivals & Departures” page above for updates.
