I’ll be reading with Saroya Marsh and Claire Fitzpatrick on Friday, 8/22 at Enigma Bookstore in Astoria, Queens. 8pm, no cover, off the NQ trains.
Just a stage full of SwanDive poets posing for our NYCPF ‘14 class pic: Andrea Talarico, Stanton Hancock, Kait Burrier, Dawn Leas, and Dale Wilsey on the White Horse stage post-reading.
Half of the SwanDive bevy made it out to Governors Island for the 4th annual New York City Poetry Festival, where we had way too much fun. Among the readers were Stanton Hancock, Andrea Talarico, Dawn Leas, Dale Wilsey, and yours truly, bunny ears and all.
See you next year, NYCPF!

Out of the Binders: A Symposium on Women Writers Today, more affectionately known as Bindercon, has garnered some serious attention!
