extended hiatus

Due to expanded commitments to my small press, I've been forced to cut down on some other projects. I would be delighted if someone else came forward to carry on this blog. Meanwhile, I hope some of the links and contacts herein are of some use.



Event to honor Michael Wurster: Pittsburgh: 2/19/08

Michael Wurster has fostered poetry in Pittsburgh for over 30 years, teaching, advising, and conducting a free monthly open workshop. Most recently he co-edited Along These Rivers, a collection of poems by Western PA-based poets, in connection with Pittsburgh's 250th anniversary. His students, friends, and colleagues are honoring Michael. They'll present him with a belated valentine: a tribute volume, Stories About Time. True to Wurster's big-tent approach, the book, edited by Ziggy Edwards and Arlene Weiner, has poems from A (Amenta) to Z (Zdrale). Lynn Emanuel writes the preface. Other authors include Ed Ochester, Arlan Hess, Jan Beatty,and Richard St. John.

The presentation/reading will take place Tuesday, February 19, at 7:00 pm, at the Te Cafe in Squirrel Hill (Pittsburgh), 2000 Murray Avenue. The Te Cafe regularly hosts poetry. Specialty teas and other beverages and tasty light suppers are available.
