POESY Dinner Party in Cambridge, MA

Dinner With Poesy

Well gang...last night, Susan Landon, Deborah Priesty, Marc and Mary Esther Goldfinger, Jack Powers, and yours truly had dinner with Poesy Publisher and founder Brian Morrisey. Brian got some great digital photos, and I plan to download them and share them with you as soon as I get a link. Brian and I talked about his interview with Gerald Nicosia, the author of MEMORY BABE ( bio of Kerouac), and script writer for the public television documentary West Coast: Beat and Beyond. Nicosia is a journalist for both the Washington Post and L.A. Times, and board member of PEN WEST. He currently teaches at UCLA. Nicosia asked Brian up to his home in Corte Madera, CA, where the interview was conducted. That interview will be in the issue that should be at your doorsteps early in Jan. For the next issue, Brian will be interviewing Diana Di Prima.

Poesy, has come along way since I signed on as Boston Editor, 5 years ago. Brian, was recently approached by the University of Wisconsin/Madison, and they bought a complete archive of his magazines for a handsome sum. Poesy has recently received excellent reviews from the Small Press Review, Mike Basinski and others. Brian tells me he gets 300 to 400 hundred poems a month, and of that 30 to 40 are selected. So if you are in, you earned it!

In the issue to be released you will also find an interview with Boston poet Jim Behrle and poetry from:
Gerald Nicosia, Margo Note, Lyn Lifshin, David Lawrence, Robbie Gamble and others. Brian tells me that in the next issue due out March, we will be running an article about the Stone Soup 2003 Anthology, based on an interview I conducted with Lynne Sticklor and Deb Priestly. There will also be a review of Jennifer Matthew's Fairytales and Misdemeanors by none other than Jack Powers. Both Morrisey and Powers loved her book, and that makes us at Ibbetson proud! Ibbetson will be releasing a book by Deborah Priestly : Women's Voices early next year. Deb showed me some of the artwork, and it looks real good!
