Richard Levine's "Snapshots from a Battle" was published as a chapbook by Headwaters Press (New York, 2001). "Mud-Walking" was published in Rattapallax #4. "The French Railroad at Quang Tri" has appeared in Medicinal Purposes Literary Review. An LP is a Listening Post, "a nasty (usually two-man) detail, wherein you set up for the night far enough away from a base or encampment to 'listen' for any night-creeping enemy before they can do larger damage, but not close enough to get back and save your own ass should you be detected."
In 2004 Pollack Press published Mr. Levine's chapbook, A Language Full of Wars and Songs. His poetry has also appeared or will appear in Big City Lit, Comstock Review, Lucid Stone, Lucid Stone, Mind The Gap, North American Review, PoetsUSA.com, POETZ.com, Rattle, SOLO and Thema. He has been published in the anthology The Book of Hope.
Mr. Levine was a finalist in the 2002 The Comstock Review poetry contest and a semi-finalist in the 2002 Lyric Recovery Festival. He was a finalist for the North American Review's James Hearst Poetry Prize in 2001. He received a Vermont Studio Center grant in 2000, and won first prize in the 1999 half a bubble off plumb poetry contest sponsored by Eratica (alas, now defunct). Also in that year, he was a semi-finalist in the Discovery/The Nation Poetry Contest and the New Millennium Writings Awards.
