Featuring Lee Rossi, March 2012

Lee Rossi is the author of four books of poetry including Ghost Diary and Wheelchair Samurai. His poems, reviews and interviews have appeared widely in such journals as The Harvard Review, The Sun, Poetry Northwest, Chelsea, The Beloit Poetry Journal, and The Southern Poetry Review. He is a staff reviewer and interviewer for the online magazine Pedestal. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Rossi is campaigning to install a Tomb of the Unknown Poet in Westminster Abbey, dedicated to “all those who have labored in Poetry’s vineyards without tasting any of her grapes.”  He has graciously volunteered to be its first occupant.

Open mic to follow.

If you wish to be included in this Willow Glen Poetry Project, please bring a hardcopy of your poem to the event, and also email it to us (see the Submissions page). Of course, it’s perfectly okay if you just want to read without submitting.

The reading will take place
