Join us to celebrate new poetry collections by Sylvia Cavanaugh and Ed Werstein!

Sylvia Cavanaugh teaches high school cultural studies and has advised breakdancers and poets. A Pushcart Prize nominee, her poems have appeared in various periodicals and anthologies. She is a Contributing Editor for Verse-Virtual: An Online Community Journal of Poetry. Her second chapbook, Angular Embrace, was published in 2018 by Kelsay Books.

Ed Werstein is the East Region VP of the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets. He is the recipient of the 2018 Lorine Niedecker Prize for Poetry from the Council for Wisconsin Writers. His chapbook, Who Are We Then?, was published in 2013 by Partisan Press. His first book-length collection, A Tar Pit To Dye In, was published earlier this year by Kelsay Books.
