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.



Thursday, October 23, 6 PM: Robin's Bookstore (108 S 13th St, Philadelphia) presents poets Christopher Casamassima, Ryan Eckes, and M. Magnus.

Christopher Casamassima is the Literary Arts Director at Towson ARTS Collective, and professor of English at Towson University - both in Baltimore. To shoulder a maternal metaphor, he has authored two books of poetry, the Proteus [Moria Books], and Joys : A Catalogue of Disappointments. His third book, Ore, is currently under production, and will contain thousands of appropriated lines from everyone between Aesop and Zukofsky, except his own, which have been dashed against the rocks or sold to his students.

Ryan Eckes lives in South Philadelphia. His poetry can be read in XConnect, Fanzine, Cue: A Journal of Prose Poetry, PhillySound, and in his chapbook when i come here (Plan B Press, 2007). He has an MA in creative writing from Temple University, where he currently teaches. Click here to visit his blog.

M. Magnus' book Verb Sap is out this fall from Narrow House of Baltimore. Much of this work, along with a few newer and older pieces, can be heard on his online radio show "MMm... Utterance" at blogtalkradio.com, ongoing throughout 2008. Magnus lives and writes in Alexandria, Virginia.
