Last Saturday I went to the book launch party for NoVa Bards Anthology, an anthology of poetry from poets living in the northern Virginia area. This is the first anthology but the editors/publishers plan on making it an annual publication.
Anthologies are always an interesting mix of poetry and this proved no different. Of the twenty-nine poets featured in the anthology, twelve came to the book launch party. And every poem had a different vibe, every poet had a different writing style.
I have two poems featured in the book, Bookshelves and A Manifestation of Anger.
You can buy a copy of the book here. The next reading will be at the Patrick Henry Library (101 Maple Ave E, Vienna, VA) on Saturday, 24 October from 2-5pm. In addition to the poets from the anthology reading, there will also be an open mic portion so come on out and enjoy some poetry!
