Newfangled 4 Poets AND Issue 16 of Assaracus

The upcoming Newfangled 4 reading happening at the Bureau of General Services--Queer Division at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 8, will feature these three excellent queer poets:

Born on a military base turned ghost town in Rome, NY, NICK COMILLA currently lives in NYC. He holds an MFA in poetry/fiction from The New School. His poems have appeared in Assaracus, Poetry Is Dead, Lambda Literary, and HOMO Magazine. He is currently working on his first book project, Ghosts of Montreal. You can check out more of his work here and sometimes here

JAMESON FITZPATRICK is the author of the chapbook Morrisroe: Erasures (89plus/LUMA Publications), and his poems have appeared in The Awl, The American Reader, The Literary Review, and Poetry, among elsewhere. He holds a BA and an MFA from New York University, where he now teaches in the Expository Writing Program. 

CHRISTOPHER SOTO (aka Loma) is a queer latin@ punk poet and prison abolitionist. They are currently curating Nepantla: A Journal Dedicated to Queer Poets of Color in collaboration with The Lambda Literary Foundation. They have work published in Columbia: A Journal, Acentos Review, Anti-, and more. They are an MFA candidate in Poetry at NYU.

These fellows are going to tear shit up. It will be a night to remember, as well as the last Newfangled reading of 2014. As far as now I plan on continuing the reading series in 2015, still happening quarterly, because doing it every month would be too much for me to deal with.

And everyone, check out issue 16 of Assaracus from Sibling Rivalry Press. It's the latest issue now available for preorder and the last issue edited by my publisher Bryan Borland. Poems appear in it from a variety of past Assaracus contributors, including me. My poem in the issue is called "We Go Seasonal." I'm very proud of this poem and grateful that it found a home in this special issue of the journal. Get a copy here:
