Karen Weyant will be our guest blogger later today!

Karen J. Weyant is an Assistant Professor of English at Jamestown Community College in Jamestown, New York.  A recipient of a 2007 poetry fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts, she has also recently won a SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activities.  Her poems have appeared in a number of journals including 5 AM, Cave Wall, Copper Nickel, Slipstream, and River Styx.  She is the author of two chapbooks, Stealing Dust and Wearing Heels in the Rust Belt, winner of the 2011 Main Street Rag Chapbook Contest.   Before she was a poet and professor, she worked a variety of jobs including brief stints as a third shift factory worker, a waitress, a reporter for a small rural newspaper, and a bookseller for a chain bookstore that no longer exists.

Currently, she lives in Warren, Pennsylvania and blogs at The Scrapper Poet.

On Tuesday the 23rd, Dan Wilcox will blog for us here at Poetry in the 11111011010.

Dan Wilcox is the host of the Third Thursday Poetry Night at the Social Justice Center in Albany, N.Y. and is a member of the poetry performance group “3 Guys from Albany”.  As a photographer, he claims to have the world’s largest collection of photos of unknown poets.  He has been a featured reader at all the important poetry venues in the Capital District & throughout the Hudson Valley and is an active member of Veterans for Peace.

He also publishes poetry under the imprint, A.P.D. (albany’s poetic device, another pleasant day, etc.).  His own poems have been published in Out of the Catskills, Post Traumatic Press 2007, Chronogram, Poetica and in numerous small press journals and anthologies, on the internet, as broadsides & in self-published chapbooks.  His chapbook boundless abodes of Albany is available from Benevolent Bird Press of Delmar, NY.  Dan blogs at at DWX.

The fact that both of our guest blogs are taking place during the same week that I need to grade 68 papers is purely coincidental!
