About POETDELPHIA: Poetdelphia is the brainchild of writers Dawn Manning, Kelly McQuain and Valerie Fox. We host quarterly readings and salon-style discussions, as well as maintain an online community through our site, Poetdelphia (www.Poetdelphia.wordpress.com ). The website focuses on all things poetic, including reviews, writing prompts, a calendar of tri-state area writing events, and even the occasional poem or prose piece by writers featured in our reading series. We can be reached through email at firstname.lastname@example.org, but the best way to get to know us is by coming to one of our events. See you there!
Hope it’s okay to let this cat out of the bag, but Leonard Gontarek will be one of our readers in December. Here is some terrific new work by Leonard (from a recent issue of Press 1).
