Join us for an event commemorating National Poetry Month on Friday, April 28, 11:00am-12:00pm. Poet Raven Drake will read from his extensive corpus of verse, published in a series of volumes as well as in the Silver City Quarterly Review: scquarterlyreview.wordpress.com/noctune-and-other-poems .
According to the Academy of American Poets on their website, “Over the years, National Poetry Month has become the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture.”
Originally from Boston, Drake moved to Grant County 10 years ago. The mountains and open spaces have provided him with a great deal of inspiration. His explorations of mythology and etymology have helped to fuel his writing ambitions. Mr. Drake’s work has been featured in the 2004 Ink Spot Anthology of Poets, Las Cruces Poets and Writers Magazine, Tales of the Talisman, Illumen magazine, the March 2007 edition of the e-zine Aoife’s Kiss, the Summer 2008 edition of the webzine La Lune Bleue Planete, Decanto magazine, and Apollo’s Lyre.
