*We are posting this opportunity for our friends at St. Rocco's Poetry Collective. See below for explanation.*

St. Rocco's Poetry Collective was founded in September 2016 as a workshop and reading series in Albany, NY. They now present a monthly group invitational reading series called "St. Rocco's Readings for the Dispossessed" and a monthly solo invitational reading called "KNOW," as well as special events including marathon readings and an annual salon for sound poetry and electronic art.

(1) BOOK PROJECT: St. Rocco's hopes to publish a history of their past four years of production next June.
They need to compile material (poems, bios, photos and captions) from a large number of contributors, and are looking for help to reach out to all contributors.

(2) AUDIO PROJECT: St. Rocco's is now has three years of audio recordings! These recordings need to be logged in order to make them more accessible. Once recordings are logged, they can start being used for a Capital District poetry radio program.

Both of these are virtual opportunities. Interested applicants should come to a St. Rocco's poetry reading to meet in person. The first reading of Fall 2019 will take place on Saturday, October 12th. [ Link]
