New blurbs

Blurbs for my forthcoming poetry collection, Madstones (BlazeVOX Books), due out in November. 

“These poems– at times dark and troubling, at other times passionate and openhearted–are the work of a very talented poet. Madstones is a book worthy of a smart and attentive audience.”

Ron Rash, author of Serena and Above the Waterfall


“Corey Mesler’s poems are like strange and wonderful little paintings, maybe what you would get if you crossed Hieronymous Bosch and Picasso.”

Juanita Brunk, author of Brief Landing on the Earth’s Surface

My interview on Memphis’s PBS station, WKNO, is now on youtube and can be found here:

A Conversation with Corey Mesler

Dear Memphis friends.

This weekend you have 3 opportunities to watch a show on WKNO (channel 10) entitled, ahem, A Conversation with Corey Mesler. I am interviewed by the perspicacious Chris Davis. We had a good time.
Here are the times: Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 12:30 a.m., and Sunday at noon.
You can learn the secret of my astonishing success!
