I am pleased and proud to announce the inauguration of a new reading series under the auspices of Soon Productions:

Who: Boston poets Jess Mynes and Christopher Rizzo

Where: At the State of the Art Gallery at 120 W. State Street in Ithaca, NY.

When: 7 PM this Saturday, November 13.

A bit about the poets:

JESS MYNES lives in Wendell, MA with dog and cat. His poems have appeared in Pettycoat Relaxer and Carve magazine. Two chapbooks of his poems, Thin and The Zookeeper’s Nostalgia, were published by Staple Gun Productions. He is an expert sausage maker. He has a forthcoming collaboration with Aaron Tieger, as well as a forthcoming chapbook from Anchorite Press. He works as a librarian.

CHRISTOPHER RIZZO earned his M.A. in Creative Writing from Boston University in 2001. His poems have appeared in several publications, most recently in Art New England, Can We Have Our Ball Back?, and Shampoo. After receiving the S. Andrea Brown Memorial Award in poetry, a short collection of his poems, The Turn, was produced as a play by the Oral Interpretation Society at Emerson. His latest chapbook, Grim Little, is a long collaborative poem written with Mark Lamoureux. He is also the founder and editor of the Anchorite Press, which publishes chapbooks, pamphlets, and broadsides by both established and young poets. He lives in Brighton, Massachusetts.

Come and get it while it's hot!
