Promotional Information

Dorothea Lasky has nearly boundless energy for her work, and is open to all sorts of publicity. She has expressed interest in tv and radio, as well as an online "tour" to supplement her geographical readings. Her 2007 Tiny Tour, in support of AWE, was a critical and popular success, and we are working to find creative ways to engender a similar virtual tour for Thunderbird. Lasky is interested in doing a national tour and is in the process of trying to line up readings and funding. We will work for features and reviews in Bookslut, Coldfront, The Paris Review, American Poet, The Awl, Gulf Coast, Boston Review, HTMLGiant, The Rumpus, Jacket2, MAKE Magazine, and The Poetry Foundation, among others. We will promote Thunderbird on Lasky's author page (http://www.wavepoetry.com/authors/54), through social media like Facebook and twitter, and on our homepage. Lasky maintains a blog and has an active online presence in various social mediums. Her skill and dedication to these forms are invaluable publicity.
