A Little Bit of Poetry News/Hazleton Arts Fest

I’m taking a slight pause from my usual blogging about the world of horror films to announce a few poetry-related items.

First, Daryl Sznyter and I will be participating in the first ever Anthracite Arts Festival this weekend in Hazleton, PA. Most of the events will be taking place at the Hazleton Arts League. Check out the flyer below because all of the events sound unique and engaging. On Saturday, from 6-10, we’ll be hosting an open mic, and we’ll also be reading some poems and will have books for sale.

Second, I have two poems, “April Light,” and “What You Learn about the House,” in the new issue of Still: The Journal. They can be read here, and make sure to check out the rest of the issue, too.

Lastly, I have a review of Wendy Chen’s debut poetry collection, Unearthings, over at 4squarereview.com. You can check that out here. I can’t even begin to say how much I loved this book. Keep your eye out for her work. She’s a poet to watch.
