Join facilitator Anthony Warnke as he welcomes Verna Press poet David Rowe to the Living Room. David will talk about his work and read some poems and then there will be time for you to debut something new and get intelligent feedback. 7P Tuesday, September 20 @ SPLAB. Bring $5 for the hat, but don’t stay away if cash is tight.

His poems have appeared in the Cortland Review, the North American Review, Big Bridge, Dorado, Solid Quarter, Exquisite Corpse, YAWP, & in the anthology, the Maple Leaf Rag.
