Joe Hess received his MA in Poetry from Miami University and his MFA from Ashland University. He feels poetry should strive to work against the Cartesian idea of the word as merely a concept and attempt to re-instill words with performative power. He also wonders if he is drawn, for some reason, to writing more “public” poetry than “private” poetry, as described by Richard Hugo in The Triggering Town. You can find his work in Marathon Literary Review; appearing soon in Lime Hawk Literary Arts Collective as well as an anthology by Shabda Press entitled Nuclear Impact: Broken Atoms in Our Hands.
