He is nearly, or even spiritually, part of us in the IBPC family already. And it is now my pleasure to announce that this fall''s IBPC judge is Paul Lisicky, as in "Heaven for Paul ": http://clatterymachinery.wordpress.com/2006/10/03/mark-doty-physically-heaven-for-paul/ (So he has already been introduced to us IBPC poets.)

Here is a brief webography:

His web site, for your perusal: paul lisicky: http://www.paullisicky.com/

His blog, for you reading and comment: Paul Lisicky: http://paullisicky.blogspot.com/

Paul speaking at Cornell: Paul Lisicky, fiction writer: http://www.cornell.edu/video/?videoID=235

There are several interviews with Paul on the web. I have selected this one in audio: Writers at Cornell: Interview: Paul Lisicky: http://writersatcornell.blogspot.com/2008/03/interview-paul-lisicky.html. At the bottom of the brief article is an MP3 button to click on. Here he speaks on many topics, including his musical beginnings and its influence on his writing, and how he "slips between the spaces of genres" and "escape[s] the limitations of categorization."

Links to his books at Graywolf Press: his novel Lawnboy (https://www.graywolfpress.org/index.php?page=shop.flypage&product_id=209&category_id=58fe665254b9537f9c81d5c1529e6c8f&option=com_phpshop), and his memoir Famous Builder (https://www.graywolfpress.org/index.php?page=shop.flypage&product_id=56&category_id=aab8f8b82b21ab061b2dcad58b93f9b1&option=com_phpshop).
