Ready to Travel! Gildzen's Passd Ports!

Alex Gildzen's new collection of poetry and short pieces, Passd Ports,  is ready to, er, ship out!
By turns witty, whimsical, wistful, and wise, Gildzen's poetry and short travel pieces will take you on a journey of astute observations, history, memory and longing.  Crisis Chronicles Press founder John Burroughs says of his work: "Gildzen is economical in his use of words, distilling the essence of champagne stories into high quality poetic cognac.  No mixer, no filler...."

Passd Ports features a pale green cardstock cover with a deep green cardstock insert, and thick, brilliant-white 25% cotton pages; a delightful photo taken by Bonn√© de Blas is included.

Alex Gildzen will be one of the featured poets in the upcoming event *NightBallet Press Presents A Fistful of Poets, and it's always a treat to hear him read.  You won't want to miss it!

Once you start reading, you won't stop until you've finished the journey, and oh, what a wonderful trip it is!

Don't pass up the
chance to get your copy of Passd Ports... order yours today!

*A Fistful of Poets will feature five fantastic poets: Bonn√© de Blas with her excellent poetry from The Act of Dwelling, John Dorsey with his brand-new chapbook of provocative poems and short stories, White Girl Problems, Alex Gildzen, freshly arrived from New Mexico, with his very soon-to-be-published and exciting NBP chap Passd Ports, Kathy "Lady" Smith with her much-anticipated new NBP chap that sparkles and snaps, Firecracker Mandalas, and Kara Johnston, with her sensitive and sensual poetry from Map Wrapping Paper Cradle Dangler. Kara's chap was published by NBP earlier this year, but this is the first time ever that NBP (and Clevelanders) will get to hear her read! All of these chaps will be published by September 13, 2012, and will be available for sale both on this site and at the Fistful event the night of September 13th. One night, five poets, good friends and excellent poetry in a venue that features delicious food, a multitude of draft beers, and a groovy ambiance. Let the magic begin!
