A while back, I met Montgomery Maxton, handsomely pictured here. He’s a recent arrival to Philadelphia… a funny, talented, warm fellow. We instantly hit it off when we started attending poetry readings together. Montgomery is a National Geographic photographer and as well as a writer with some prose projects coming soon from Sibling Rivalry Press (watch for ’em!). For a while now he’s been collecting pics of poets he meets from various online sources and posting them online–a literary time capsule of our time. You can visit his growing collection here: http://poetsproject.tumblr.com
I was flattered that he had me join the collection when we met up with writers Brian Teare, Karl Woelz, and Kyle Conner recently in the green splendor of the garden at the Morris Hotel for cocktails. We had so much fun we didn’t even mind the near-100 degree Philly heat!
