Photos of Recent Readings

I’ve given a couple of readings in Pittsburgh of late, and a few people took photographs (thanks Mike and Racheal), so here they are. The first is from my reading at the Bonfire Reading Series on March 4, 2017, where I read some sonnets from my ongoing series; the second two photographs are from last night at the release party for The After Happy Hour Review, no. 7, put on by the Hour After Happy Hour Writing Workshop. To mark the ten year anniversary of my first publication, last night I also read “Symphony of the Great Transnational” (2007), which originally was published in Spork and appears in The Rocking Chair (2015). It’s been a pleasure to get back to reading my poetry in public.

I’ll be giving another reading in Pittsburgh for Hemingway’s Summer Poetry Series on June 13, 2017 at 8:00 pm at Hemingway’s Cafe in Oakland. I’ll be reading from my forthcoming book, The Shape of Things (Salò Press, 2017).

Reading at Assemble March 27

I am quite pleased to announce that, for the first time in quite a while, I will be reading some of my poems at Assemble in Pittsburgh, PA on Thursday, 27 March 2014. The reading has been put on by the Hour After Happy Hour Writing Workshop & Journal. Weenta Girmay, Tyson Himes, Jessica McNally, Jason Peck, and one of my former students, Amy Hayes, will also be reading. I am quite looking forward to sharing some of my recent writing with an audience. It has been far too long.
