Hello...the Cambridge Poetry Awards will be held next month. I used to cover them for Spare Change News. It's a good alternative award venue, considering all the academic poets in Cambridge, Ma. Ever hear of 96inc... A great magazine in Boston that publishes poetry and fiction. It also has a social service mission to help youth, and homeless youth, through the Arts. I will be interviewing founder Vera Gold for Poesy Magazine soon. (www.poesy.org) Harris Gardner is gearing up for his annual Poetry Marathon in April at the Boston Public Library. Poets will be reading successively on a Saturday and Sunday. Hey--this is a paid gig!
