Launch Day!

Well, today is the day! My first full-length book of poems, All That Remains, is out through Unbound Content. If you want a copy of the book, you can order it through the publisher by clicking here or through Amazon here.

To celebrate, I’m having a launch party tonight at The Vintage Theater, 326 Spruce Street in Scranton. The event starts at 7, and I’ll have books available. I’m also reading next week, Friday, Nov. 1, at the Seeley Memorial at Lackawanna College. That event starts at 6 p.m., and it is part of Scranton’s First Friday. There will also be student artwork, a student open mic following my reading, and live music.

Some Love from Journals

I’m thrilled to announce that I got a copy of the Michigan-based journal Third Wednesday in the mail today, and in the latest issue, I am the featured poet. Eight of my poems are included, as well as an introduction to my writing. Most of the poems included will be in my forthcoming full-length collection, which Unbound Content is publishing in 2013. The Third Wednesday poems are a nice preview of the book, especially in terms of the form, tone, and subject matter that my new collection will focus on.

Unfortunately, this journal doesn’t put any of its work online, but you can order copies through the website by clicking here.

I especially like the work Third Wednesday does because it often features a small sampling of writing by students in Detroit area schools. The editorial staff works with the organization Inside Out Literary Arts Project to foster creative writing in city schools and then supports some of the work through the journal.

In addition to the poems in Third Wednesday, I also have two pieces in the latest issue of Boston Literary Magazine. You can read them by clicking here, or ordering a print copy through the website.
