Hi folks. no preamble this time! Here you go!

The three "Readers" for this post are:

1.Alan W. Jankowski: Is the award winning author of well over one hundred short stories, plays and poems. His stories have been published online, and in various journals including Oysters & Chocolate, Muscadine Lines: A Southern Journal, eFiction Magazine, Zouch, The Rusty Nail, and a few others. His poetry has more recently become popular, and his 9-11 Tribute poem was used extensively in ceremonies during the tenth anniversary of this tragic event...

Special note: Alan told me that he had trouble with the link to My Multi-million Dollar Poetry Seminar Facebook event listing in the last post. Clearly proving he had in fact  read the post and qualifying him to be listed in this one! I'm not sure why he had trouble but the event is still happening and as far as I know the link is still live. Here's it is again and please let me know if you have any further difficulties! ( Alan that means YOU TOO!)

When he is not writing, which is not often, his hobbies include music and camera collecting. He currently resides in New Jersey. He always appreciates feedback of any kind on his work, and can be reached by e-mail at:
2.J. J.   Blackwood: Published Author of Poetry writing under the pen name of J. J. Blackwood with first title :Frisson of Spirit" released September 14, 2010.Inspired by the Songs of Solomon, J.J. Blackwood's Frisson of Spirit reveals her poetic journey of discovery and revelation, pointing readers toward the one true spirit of God

3. Arn  Albertini:  works for a company that does corporate training. We teach our clients how to use new software and business processes. I help write the trainings, which are in the form of eLearnings and instructor led trainings.

I'm using the skills honed as a journalist: clear concise writing,meeting deadlines, researching, processing new information quickly, working with different types of people and working as part of a team.

I am also a freelance journalist, publishing occasional freelance articles.
And the events of interest:

The Blue Bird Reading at Avenue 50 Studio Featuring : Chiwan Choi,Brendan Constantine,Mandy Kahn
Ryan Nance.  with OPEN MIC after the feature. 2 minutes max. SIGN UP begins at 1:45!  Brendan is a former California Poet Laurette Nominee and a dear friend so you may think me biased for putting it this way, and of course you may feel free to do so! However,  the fact remains  that the year he was nominated  it came down to just two California poets : Philip Levine and Him! Based on the this I've come to the conclusion that had he been up against any other California poet ( including : Lawrence Ferlinghetti, S.A. Griffin, Wanda Coleman,  or anyone else.) He clearly WOULD HAVE WON THE TITLE BY A LANDSLIDE!  But as I said , he is a dear friend and you might consider me biased because of that. SO DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT! CLICK ON THE LINK , GET THE DETAILS AND SEE I'M RIGHT FOR YOURSELF!  

4. Peter's Picks:One of the popular features of our exhibits is "Peter's Picks". For most of our shows, Peter Marr, local photographer and often judge of photography competitions, makes selections of his favorite photographs exhibited by the featured and guest photographers. We are pleased that the next show will be a selection of Peter's and Gallery picks from our shows in 2011, a retrospection of some of the favorite work from the 13 exhibits of that year. We are pleased that Peter will also exhibit his specialty - exceptional bird photography. 36 photographers answered the call to return with their selected photographs for this retrospective. Image City Photography Gallery 722 University Avenue Rochester NY 14607 Gallery Hours
