Your Very Own


John Nyman

John Nyman’s debut poetry collection, Players (Palimpsest Press), was shortlisted for the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award in 2017. He has two new chapbooks forthcoming: a sequence of visual and textual erasures titled Your Very Own (JackPine Press) and a poetry collection titled The Devil (knife | fork | book).

“These three pieces are excerpts from the chapbook Your Very Own (forthcoming from JackPine Press), which erases text and images from Choose Your Own Adventure #43: Grand Canyon Odyssey (1985) by Jay Leibold (author) and Don Hedin (illustrator).”
