Rogue is comin’…

February 24, 2010

As someone fairly new to Fresno, I experienced my first Rogue Festival only last year, and realized how lucky I am to be here in this city.  (Check out Rogue’s 2010 site here:  This year I’m going to read one of the nights with the San Joaquin Literary Association, an organization on the campus of Fresno State.  Specifically I’ll read at The Spectrum Gallery at 608 E. Olive on Saturday, March 6th, at 8:45 p.m. — with my friend and poet Juan Guzman as well as creative nonfiction writers Rachel Jackson and Steven Church — and admission is $4.  Be sure to check out the rest of the festival, especially my friends with the Chicano Writers and Artists Association.  Both SJLA and CWAA are on Facebook, please say hi!


The anthology is out today!

I received my copy of Time You Let Me In today, and it’s so surreal to see something I wrote printed and bound.  You can browse inside it on the publisher’s website:  HarperCollins and Naomi did such a beautiful job of putting it all together, and I can’t wait to read all the other poets in it!
