A veteran of both page and stage in the poetry world, I’ve been publishing and reading in journals and on stages around the US for over thirty years. My work has appeared in anthologies including A Generation Defining Itself, from MPW Press; Look, Up In the Sky! and Appleseeds, both from Sacred Fools Press; From Page To Stage, The Wordsmith Press; Knocking At The Door, Birch Bench Press (all US); and 100 Poets Against the War, from Salt Publishing (UK).
My work has also appeared in many journals (among them: Riverwalk Journal, The Ballard Street Poetry Journal, nthposition, The Worcester Review, The Furnace Review, New Verse News, The November Third Club, Spindle, Breath And Shadow, Home Planet News, and World Literature Today).
I was named a “Legend of Slam” at the 2006 National Poetry Slam in Austin, TX, and was elected “The Poet Laureate Of The Blogosphere” by voters at thebloggingpoet.com for 2008.
A three-time Pushcart Prize nominee, I’m the author of thirteen chapbooks and three CDs of my work, the latter with my music and poetry project, The Duende Project, which features the stellar bass and nylon string guitar work of Steven Lanning-Cafaro (aka “Faro.”)
I’m a regular columnist blogger for the online journal Radius (radiuslit.org).
A chapbook of recent poems, FLOOD, is available from Pudding House Publications (Columbus, OH). They can be purchased from Tony at readings and through the publisher’s Website. $10.00 US. In addition, the Duende Project’s most recent album, “The Duende Project,” is available at all your favorite digital music outlets.
