December Update on Poetdelphia and Other News…

I’m posting a link to the salon series I run, Poetdelphia. Come join us, if you like. RYAN ECKES, SUZANNE PARKER & DAVID GROFF are reading this Friday the 13, 2013. http://poetdelphia.wordpress.com/2013/12/10/poetdelphia-dec-13-suzanne-parker-ryan-eckes-david-groff/ David Groff is a poet I met some years ago, a writer from NYC with an amazing new book called CLAY. Suzanne Parker is a poet I met during one of the happiest summers of my life, a summer I spent writing in Prague. Suzanne had won a fellowship for her poetry that year–the summer of 2001, I believe. Her new book is called VIRAL, which focuses on the bullying case of Tyler Clementi, the Rutgers student who killed himself. Ryan Eckes is an affable local fellow whose inventive poetry often depicts working class themes. Poetdelphia attempts to break down the barriers between various writing cliques and to help audiences discover new writers.

In other writing news, it’s been a good couple of weeks with new poems picked up for two anthologies, Drawn to Marvel: Superhero Poems and The Queer South. These anthologies are due in 2014, and they come on the heels of publication of one of my poems in BETWEEN: NEW GAY POETRY, out just now from Chelsea Station Press and edited by Jameson Currier.
