The Poet for Hire Has News and Events
I'll be updating this site with news concerning my work and readings, as well as including features for Stone Soup Poetry, where I host almost every week. For slightly more updated news, more personal material, and occasionally more quirky things, you can visit my blog.
August 1: Mark Lipman Comes Back to Stone Soup
Mark Lipman has been many things. A poet, a political candidate, a publisher (and, as I recently noted, perhaps a younger, alternate universe version of our own Walter Howard). He visited our venue not too long ago, and now he's returning to the area on August 1 as a Stone Soup feature. It's going to be an exciting night and a great way to start our homestretch to the end of summer. Thanks to Mark for agreeing to feature, and a special thanks to those of you who have come these past hot nights. If you keep it up for this final extra hot month ahead, I think you'll be rewarded with the features we have coming up.

Listen to our most recent podcast featuring Reece Cotton and stay tuned for more episodes.
Support my Friends to Help Their Family Dog
This is a Gofundme I personally started. It involves lifelong friends of mine and their family dog Annabelle, who is very ill and undergoing chemo treatments. My friend Mike is overseas. He is devastated by this news and unable to do anything until his tour of duty ends later this year. Meanwhile, his wife Karen and son Jonathan (pictured left with Annabelle) are struggling to do what they can so the family as a whole can be there to greet Mike when he comes home.
