There’s going to be An Incredible Sestina Reading at the Massachusetts Poetry Festival, which takes place in Salem, MA on May 2-4. The readers/panelists will include myself, Michael Costello, Vincent D. Infante, Ravi Shankar, Peter Jay Shippy, and Jade Sylvan.

Our event takes place from 1:30pm-2:30pm, on Saturday, May 3, 2014, in the Peabody Essex Museum’s Bartlett Gallery.
