It’s been more than a month since I last posted any­thing, mostly because I’ve been very busy. I will be back to blog­ging soon, though, on a new host, with a new look, and also a newslet­ter that I hope you will sign up for when it’s ready to go. Till then, let me wish you a belated happy, healthy, suc­cess­ful, and mean­ing­ful 2014.

Updated to add: So I’m up on my new server, but some things have gone awry in terms of import­ing my posts, images, and so on. So you may find that things look less than pro­fes­sional for a while. I will be work­ing to get that fixed. Thanks for your patience.


Bhisham Bherwani’s first poetry col­lec­tion, The Sec­ond Night of the Spirit, was pub­lished in 2009 by CavanKerry Press.

He has received schol­ar­ships and fel­low­ships from the Bread Loaf Writ­ers’ Con­fer­ence, The Frost Place, the Salton­stall Foun­da­tion for the Arts, Ucross Foun­da­tion, and the Jen­tel Artist Res­i­dency Pro­gram.
