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!
I’m getting excited for the New York City Poetry Festival!! The event runs the weekend of July 26th & 27th and is free and open to the public. There will be art, culture, food trucks, boozing, schmoozing, books, a family-friendly children’s poetry festival, and, of course, readings!! See you there xoxo
Governors Ball has consistently outdone itself each year, in the best possible way. Self-contained on New York City’s Randall’s Isla…
SwanDive Publishing Co. headed up north to the 8th annual Buffalo Small Press Book Fair, held April 5th & 6th. We premiered Everyday Escape Poems and even had the opportunity to read at the gorgeous Karpeles Manuscript Library. Thanks so much to everyone who made that amazing weekend of art and culture, and for the hospitality of the Buffalo lit community. See you there next year!
In the meantime, check out their site at www.buffalosmallpress.org and click through the pic to catch a performance of my poem “New York,” from the new anthology.
Thanks to Monique Lewis of At the Inkwell for filming “New York,” at the 4th annual New York City Poetry Festival!

SwanDive Publishing Company celebrated the launch of Everyday Escape Poems at AFA Gallery in Scranton, Pennsylvania on Friday, April 11th, 2014. The evening featured a reading and a book signing by most of SwanDive’s poets.
I participated in Etruscan Press’s book trailer for Cuban poet Roberto Manzano’s bilingual collection, “Synergos.” It was the first time I’d read his work, and pronouncing those lush lines was like biting into ripe, sweet fruit. I couldn’t get enough. The book is available online at etruscanpress.org
