You Can't Walk Away from Your Face Press

Thank you to Matt Henriksen for pulling together and beautifully pulling off the Frank Stanford Festival.


Totally worth waking up at 3am flying to Kansas City driving through Missouri to Arkansas sleeping on a couch one night sleeping on carpet for a few hours during a 12 hour reading the second night driving back to Missouri at 4am and returning to NY at 10pm on Sunday. Why? Because I heard amazing poets and scholars speak about Frank Stanford's poetry, read his poetry, and read their own.

I'll let other attendees tell you more about the discussions of Stanford and his texts:

waffle house, kansas city
Maj R Thrift, Kansas City
