’95 Journalism grad’s second book of poetry published


Real Boy Blues covers a surprising range of topics, with poems about road kill, baseball, sons and their fathers, hitch hiking and JFK’s assassination.

Before moving to Bellingham, Wash., in July 2012, Lochridge was the entertainment editor at the Rapid City Journal in Rapid City, S.D., where he covered the arts and music scene for nearly 17 years. He holds a degree in mass communications from South Dakota State University.

Lochridge is the author of another collection of poetry, Father’s Curse (FootHills Publishing, 2007), and the editor of After Long Busyness: Interviews with Eight Heartland Poets (Smashwords, 2012).
