Literary Partners Program presents: Coast to Coast Poetry Press Collective

A Diverse Poetry Reading from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean

Jul 30, 2016 | 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Poets published by four small presses (Shabda Press, Many Voices Press, Hummingbird Press, & FootHills Publishing) in the Coast to Coast Poetry Press Collective gather for the first time in New York City to share their poetry. The presses represent a diversity of poets, ethnicities and cultures from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean and around the world. The presses also represent a diversity in publishing, creating books that are unique to their aesthetics from hand-bound books to books printed locally and sustainably. Poets reading will be traveling from states including California, Colorado, Michigan, New York, Washington, and from Japan. Join us in celebrating acclaimed Japanese Poet Mariko Kitakubo’s debut U.S. release of her full-length collection of tanka, Indigo, acclaimed haiku poet Deborah P. Kolodji’s release of her first full-length collection of haiku, Highway of Sleeping Towns, David Giver’s second collection of poetry, I Still Remember the Last Time You Held My Hand, Native American mixed-lineage poet Susan Deer Cloud’s just-released book of poetry, Before Language, and Emily Johnston’s new book of poetry, Her Animals.

Featuring Susan Deer Cloud (NY), Michael Czarnecki (NY), Mariko Kitakubo (Tokyo, Japan), Deborah P. Kolodji (CA), Joan I. Siegel (NY), Teresa Mei Chuc (CA), Drew Dillhunt (WA), Jennifer Clark (MI), Doren Damico (CA), Emily Johnston (WA), Heather H. Thomas (PA), R.G. Evans (NJ), J.C.
