Very much enjoyed my stroll through your blog...as a poet and an avid reader, I found it both an enlightening and enriching stay. I thank you...

Hey, dude—I googled you because I was looking for your email address. Caitlin and I are in Tempe the weekend of the 15th of November for some MFA defenses. I hope you'll have time to knock back a couple of brews with me, because the word on the street is that there are plenty of brews down there that could use a good knocking back or two.

Oh, and nice blog you got going. Great picture. You look taller than you do in real life.

Hi Josh! How are you? My sister, Kristin, was researching Grad schools ans came across you site. I see that you have a poetry book published, can't wait to check it out.
All the best,

Casey Pratt. I haven't talked to you since (according to my memory) a bus ride down Century Rd. near McDonald's nursery in about 1992ish.

But I found a couple links to some of your poems and wanted to say awesome. I'm gonna get my hands on your book as soon as possible.

As it turns out, my wife (Gretchen Steele Pratt) does poetry too -- I found your name down on the side of RATTLE's webpage.

Looks like really good stuff... and that review by Sara Lamers was cool. She went to school with me at Purdue for about two years.

I just got a job as a professor at Wingate University in NC teaching English -- I'll keep in touch, because when I wrangle a little more influence around here I'd be thrilled to have somebody from Saginaw other than Theodore Roethke come read some poetry on campus.

Keep truckin.

Hi Josh...I stumbled across your book on Amazon and did a double take. It's been almost 20 years, but I can still remember the young kid with a passion to write. Kudos to you for following your calling! I very much look forward to receiving my copy. Amy Railling
