What are your plans for the future? I’m very excited for 2013. This year, my first book ,The Disordered, is coming out from SunnyOutside Press. I also have a chapbook of love poems called Backhanded Compliments and Other Ways to Say I Love You coming out this year from a new press here in San Francisco called Works on Paper Press. So, I’m very excited for both those releases in the New Year. In terms of new writing projects, I’m working a new book of poems based on the Bromanticism Poetry Movement., which means I’ll be writing poems to my bros and my bromantic heroes like Paul Rudd, Kanye West, Ryan Gosling, etc. I’m pretty excited about it. Because this is a winter issue -- what does winter mean to you? Aesthetically, traditionally, emotionally – It’s interesting because now I associate winter with family, childhood, and the past. I’ve lived in San Francisco for five and a half years now while the rest of my family and friends are back in Virginia where I grew up. So winter break is the one time I get to be around all my friends and family. Winter to me is so nostalgic now. It’s kind of what I tried to touch upon in the poem I wrote on the issue two theme. Winter, almost always now, makes me think of home. see Anhvu’s work on following page
