Incite: A Poetic Conversation: Dianne Borensik + John Burroughs

Join us Tuesday May 8th for the second installment of our poetic conversation as RA discusses poetry, small presses and everything in between with poet/publishers Dianne Borsenik and John Burroughs.

the conversation will begin at 7pm and is free and open to the public.

More about our writers:

Dianne Borsenik is active in the northern Ohio poetry scene and regional reading circuit. Her poems have been widely published in journals, anthologies, and magazines, including Chiron Review, The Offbeat, Lilliput Review, Poems-For-All, Rosebud, and Slipstream. Crisis Chronicles Press published her first full length collection of poems, Age of Aquarius, in 2016. Lit Youngstown selected her poem “Disco” to appear on their tee shirts, which makes her feel like a rock star. In 2011, she founded NightBallet Press, and has since published over one hundred titles for poets across the United States. Find her on Facebook and at www.dianneborsenik.com.


John Burroughs is a nationally-touring poet and performer from the Cleveland area and the author over a dozen chapbooks including Water Works, Electric Company, Beat Attitude and The Eater of the Absurd. His latest, Loss and Foundering, will be published in April 2018 by NightBallet Press. In various past lives, John served as playwright-in-residence for the Ministry of Theatre at Marion Correctional Institution, his blog was ranked #1 on MySpace, he won the first poetry slam he ever competed in, and he co-founded (with Dianne Borsenik) the infamous Lix and Kix Poetry Extravaganza and almost-annual Snoetry: A Winter Wordfest. John has edited numerous volumes, including the Oct Tongue poetry series, Cheap and Easy Magazine and the anti-censorship anthology Fuck Poetry, and he is probably most proud of his work since 2008 as the founding editor of Crisis Chronicles Press.
