We were honored to have Michael Milburn’s wonderful, unique essay “Hot Glass” appear in the Spring 2012 issue of r.kv.r.y. He currently teaches high school English in New Haven, CT and his book of essays, Odd Man In, was published by MidList Press in 2005.
His forthcoming book, Carpe Something, is a collection of poems and will be available sometime this spring.
