I'm pleased to announce that my poem "Tongue and Bone" will be published in the next edition of Alligator Juniper. It's a fairly long poem about food, cows, and my grandmother, and one of my favorites of those I've written recently.
Great, short article from Fast Company on some of the dismal design of Olympics logos. They're not all terrible, and I get that the brief is challenging – represent both an international event and your specific country and/or city, respect the historic tradition and also Be Modern!, etc. – but you'd think that with the budget the committee has got to be working with they could've come up with something better on some of these. At least they dropped the Roman numerals. Personally, I think games we hosted have both the worst and best of the collection.
Two new articles out: one for Vermont's Local Banquet on whey-fed pork in Vermont (and beyond), and a short piece for ACORN's 2016 Local Food Guide on the perception of high prices in local food.
The summer issue of Local Banquet is fun and informative (as always) – in addition to my piece there's a great one about butter and another about new potatoes which I love. Check it out!
