Anthology various authors
Local author Jeff Bursey is in good company in the latest anthology from Verbivoracious Press. Verbivoracious Festschrift: Volume Six: The Oulipo (October 2017) is a 500+-page collection featuring work by a roster of internationally respected writers (David Bellos, Andriana Minou, Lance Olsen, and Philip Terry, among others) who were invited to write a piece of fiction, an essay, a poem, or something else, and choose their own constraints. Bursey’s contributions are two chapters from Ennead, a novel-in-progress. One is comprised of notes a businessman makes during trips (on his work, the other passengers, and a particular girl) and the other looks at a married couple going through a rough patch. The chosen restraint is to deliberately not use one letter from the alphabet for each chapter.
