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

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!
Here is the cover for my forthcoming poetry book from BlazeVox Books. Painting of ‘Madstones’ by Amanda Bearden. Cover design by Geoffrey Gatza. I’m right proud of it.

Found out last night that this short film, which I wrote, is one of ten finalists for The Memphis Film Prize. You may remember that last year the film I wrote, We Go On, won the whole thing. Why not dream that it could happen a second time? The ten finalists will be shown on the big screen at Studio on the Square, where the final voting will take place.
