Poetry news from here and there

If you live in the Boston, MA area or will be visiting in early November, mark your calendar for The Somerville News Writers Festival V, to be held at the Jimmy Tingle Theater on November 11 at 7 p.m. Featured poets include Gloria Mindock, Dainelle Legros Georges, Irene Koronas, La Galluccio, and Douglas Holder. The 2007 Ibbetson Street Lifetime Award will be presented to Robert Pinksy, former U.S. Poet Laureate and founder of The Favorite Poem Project.

 

A classic 1994 Dave Barry column explores the poetry anthology biz.

 

The poems are out there: poetry about aliens.

UPDATE FROM LO (not “LA”) GALLUCIO (with apologies):

 

Thanks for the mention. I only wanted to let you know that my name is actually Lo Galluccio, not La Galluccio. Although I kind of like your variation. I also have an Italian website at http://unofficiallogalluccio.atspace.com. I’ll be reading at Out of the Blue Gallery with Edward J. Carvahlo on August 18th. Again, thanks for the mention and your publicizing the Writer’s Festival which I am proud to be part of this year.
