The American Voice In Poetry

I'm pleased to announce that one of my poems has been included in a recently released anthology entitled, THE AMERICAN VOICE IN POETRY: THE LEGACY OF WHITMAN, WILLIAMS, AND GINSBERG (edited by Maria Mazziotti Gillan).  The anthology is a compilation of award-winning poems selected to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Poetry Center at Passaic County Community College (NJ).  The book has been published with grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, and the Discover Jersey Arts program.

It was an honor to read my contribution to the project at the launch party/reading and reception held today at the beautiful and historic Hamilton Arts Club in Paterson (NJ).  What a fun and inspiring afternoon!   

The Record newspaper recently featured a piece about the Poetry Center and the efforts of award-winning poetMaria Mazziotti Gillan, editor of the anthology and the Founder and Executive Director of the Poetry Center.  Link to read THE ARTICLE.
