Aw, there's a sweet blog post about my reading at "Poetry in Public":
"Whether you think about it or not, poetry is in our daily lives. I attended a poetry reading with visiting writer, Aaron Poochigian, at Thompson Library this past week. At first I really had no idea what to expect but as the reading concluded, I realized how poetry can impact us directly. . ."

I had a delightful interview with Andrea Garrison Tuesday night, 11/27/12--Check it out. She usually interviews musicians, social activists and spiritualists--I was her first poet. A lot of reciting--my stuff, Sappho (Greek and English) and, yes, even my bro' and soul-mate, John Milton.

New Formalism and the Classical Contemporary Tradition
by Kevin L. Nenstiel, U of Nebraska-Kearney
Like his fellow classicist AE Stallings, Aaron Poochigian forms a bridge between the dead luminaries he translates, and today's introspective verse.
