A bit of Poet Laureate news

Sorry I forgot this news (have been a bit absent from blogging)

In April, I was reappointed to the post of Poet Laureate of Rockland, Maine, ending my term as the 2nd PL of the city and beginning my term as 3rd PL of the city. Many thanks to all who helped in my first term, most especially the staff of the Rockland Public Library for all their various modes of support!

I have many plans for this term, but the biggest by far is the ROCK CITY POETRY FESTIVAL to be held in Aprill of 2015. Please contact me if you are willing to donate to the success of this effort. I will be doing a KICKSTARTER campaign shortly as we need to raise $35K to be able to make this series of events happen.

Nationally known poets Richard Blanco, Patricia Smith, and Dorianne Laux (native Mainer) will be here to read and engage in workshops.

You KNOW you want to be a part of this wonderful event! Email me for details or to help.
