STEEL VICTORY and the Morgantown Poets Society

Last Thursday, August 20, the Morgantown Poets Society hosted authors from Raw Dog Screaming Press at the Monongalia Arts Center in Morgantown, West Virginia. STEEL VICTORY and I were joined by bizarro poet B.E. Burkhead, with his new poetry collection THE UNDERSIDE OF THE RAINBOW. My friend Julia was kind enough to take some pictures, which I’ve shared here.

Afterward, I enjoyed a great open mic session as members of the Morgantown Poets Society shared their short fiction and poetry. I had a great time in Morgantown and I can’t wait to visit again.
