I’m so glad to finally be announcing the release of The Messenger is Sudden Thunder: Selections from Lexington Poetry Month 2016.

We want to celebrate this release with an event at the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning on Wednesday, September 20th, from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. Please come read your poem from the anthology! There will be drinks and snacks, and with any luck, just enough time to chat. Invite friends and family. This is one of the best readings of the year.

If you are interested in getting a copy of the anthology there are a couple of ways we can make that happen:

  1. Come to the reading! We will have them there for an even $20 cash or check, but will also be able to process credit cards.
  2. Order directly from the Workhorse website by clicking here!
  3. Help us reach 100 supporters and receive a copy of the 2016 and 2017 anthology by becoming a patron.

If you have already pledged five or more dollars to Workhorse (thank you!), we will be shipping your book out soon! Feel free to let me know you are attending the reading and you can pick your book up there.

Finally, Workhorse is accepting applications for the 3rd year of The Poetry Gauntlet. You can read it about it here! It’s a year long challenge to write 100 poems and read 12 books of poetry with a community of 10 other poets. I hope you’ll join us. We’ve had writers from all over Kentucky the last two years!

That’s all (and probably more than enough) for now! Hope to see everyone soon.

Take Care,
