I’m always intrigued and inspired by people who think outside the box in terms of how to distribute poetry to a larger audience, so I was really excited when I learned about the Pittsburgh Poetry Houses project.
My family moved to Erie, PA when I was about eight years old, and when I graduated from high school, I attended Allegheny College, which is a mere 45 minutes down the road in Meadville, PA. My husband is from the South Hills and I my sister currently lives on the South side of Pittsburgh, so we visit the city several times a year.
This is all to say that I was thrilled to receive notification that one of my poems (a 30/30 poem no less!) was accepted for publication through this fantastic project. More details to come soon, but what a great way to kick of 2016.
