Sometimes, Illinois by Steve Brightman is published!

Ohio poet Steve Brightman's brand new NightBallet Press chap Sometimes, Illinois, is published!

 It debuted at the Mac's Back's event in Cleveland Heights last night, where Steve Brightman gave a simply delicious reading from his book:

NightBallet is very pleased to publish this fine poet, who uses both brevity and wit to create pithy little poems that pack a punch.  Seek him out and buy a copy of Sometimes, Illinois, or order yours on this website from NightBallet today!
Ohio poets Jim Lang (Coyote Moon, NightBallet Press 2012) and Bree (the melody, I swear, it's just around that way, Crisis Chronicles Press, 2011) also gave fantastic readings last night.  Jim Lang brought his own unique brand of performance, along with his wonderful, autobiographical poems:

Crisis Chronicles poet Bree began her reading with a song, and continued with a good number of beautiful, lyrical poems:

Many thanks to these three poets, who made March's combined NightBallet Press/Crisis Chronicles Press/Mac's Back's Books on Coventry event an exciting, satisfying, outstanding evening of poetry!  Special thanks to Suzanne DeGaetano for giving NightBallet and Crisis Chronicles the opportunity to bring this event to life.
