Some plugs

As an Orlando Magic and NBA fan, I’ve had a rough couple of days as my poor team becomes more and more irrelevant because their rivals are adding superstars as the playoffs near and the Magic are stuck with what they have. So, to get my mind off of that and to share some positive poetry news, I wanted to make some shameless plugs today. : )

First, I wanted to announce that new poems of mine, “Dive,” “Gypsy,” and “Old Friend,” were published by the online literary journal WritingRaw.com, which publishes book reviews, poetry, and fiction.  You can access the poems by clicking the link to the website and scrolling down on the page, or you can read each poem in the PDF format.

In addition, I’m also going to take part in the OutLoudLit reading series again this Saturday in Mechanicsburg, PA. I had a fantastic time reading at the event in December, and I look forward to the variety of writing that will be featured this time around. The reading will take place at 6 p.m. at the Gallerie, 13 E. Main Street, right in the downtown. The theme for Saturday’s event is “love gone wrong,” so I look forward to showcasing some new poems that fit into that theme from the draft of my second manuscript. I’ll also read a poem or two from Front Man that also fit that theme.

Here is a full list of the readers and their genres:

Maria Snyder (fiction)
Chet Williamson (fiction)
Brian Fanelli (poetry)
Amye Archer (memoir)
William D. Prystauk (screenplay)
Curtis Smith (fiction/essay)
Rick Fellinger (fiction)
Susan Marvel Ferrer (play)
