Last July's launch for Fall Lines, the summer issue of Jasper Magazine

I'm still remembering the lovely evening of poetry and prose back in July that celebrated the launch of Fall Lines for 2015. A room full of poets and friends of poetry gathered at Tapps Art Center in Columbia to see the unveiling of Jasper's summer issue and to hear some poetry and fiction from it. Congratulations again to Worthy Evans, winner of the Saluda Prize for Poetry, and Liesel Hamilton, winner of the Broad River Prize for Prose. I was honored to be included in the issue with them and many other talented poets and writers. Here are the details:
