Some Updates

I’m excited to announce some recent publication news. Two of my pieces, “Summer at the Press Plant” and “Lone Protestor,” appear in the current issue of the online journal Blue Lotus Review. My friend and fellow Wilkes M.F.A. alum Andrea Janov also has a poem in the new issue. Check the work out here.  Another one of my poems, “After Work,” appears in the new print issue of Harpur Palate. That journal has rejected my work about 5 or 6 times in the past, so I’m happy to finally land a poem in its pages.  It’s a tough nut to crack.

I also want to announce that Library Express, a bookstore on the second floor of the Steamtown Mall, is going to have open mic nights for writers the fourth Thursday of each month from 6:30-8 pm. This event is free and open to writers of any level. It would be wonderful if a lot of people came out to the first one, slated to run Thursday, Feb 23. Support the only bookstore downtown Scranton has!
