I just meet with Deborah Priestly and Lynne Sticklor about Deb's long awaited book The Woman Has A Voice. Lynne, who is designing and editing the book hopes to have it at the printers by Friday March 26. Deb is the cofounder of The Out of the Blue Art Gallery in Cambridge. This book is wonderfully illustrated L. Geharty and C. Fahey , and deals with women in all stages of their lives...

Also Ibbetson has a book by blind poet Joanna Nealon, that we hope to have out some time in April 2004 LIVING IT

Susie Davidson also has a book due out, so Ibbetson Street is quite busy.

Tim Gager is organizing a reading for poets and writers at the Boston University Bookstore on the evening of May 4. Such poets as: Jack Powers, Deborah Priestly and Yours Truly will be reading...

I will be heading for NYC for a literary dinner for the new renaissance magazine. We hope to raise funds for this fine literary journal. I have an interview with street poet Marc Goldfinger in the issue coming up. Also included is the poetry of Stephen Todd Booker, and the artwork of Arthur Polonsky.

The Spare Change Annual All Poetry Issue will be out April 1. There will be an interview with Afaa Michael Weaver, and one with poet/mime James Van Looy, not to mention selections of the best poetry of the year to appear on SPN's pages.
