Meet Samuel Amadon.
He’s a good friend of mine who will be joining the creative writing faculty at the University of South Carolina in the fall. Check out his website here: http://www.samuelamadon.com/. And some of his poetry here: http://www.poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/22157 and here: http://www.octopusmagazine.com/Issue14/html/main.html
Also, head over to the Hub City Bookshop where you can pick up a copy of his first collection, Like a Sea. (Read reviews here:http://www.samuelamadon.com/?page_id=35)
