Crowd at reading

Had a great two weeks of poetry. Sunday was the Poetry Festival: A Celebration of New Jersey’s Literary Journals. 13 journals – a great day of sharing and selling journals and books and meeting old and new friends. Much congratulations to Diane Lockward – the founder and still the heart and soul of the event. She did her usual great job. There was a large crowd. See the photos above and also check the web site ( and click on “readings”.

Last Tuesday the winners of the Middle and High School Poetry Contest read at Barnes & Noble. There were 24 readers and it was standing room only. It was taped for Channel 15 and should be broadcast later this week.

Then on Thursday I was one of three featured readers at Last Thursday poetry reading at Middletown Library, hosted by Gloria Healy. We had a nice crowd – very receptive and appreciative. I read with Wes Czyzewski and J.C. Todd – we were three very different voices that meshed together quite well.
