Foundlings Poetry Zine Launches May 1st

I’ve kept this under wraps for a while, but Artvoice was cool enough to break the news that Buffalo will be home to a new poetry magazine, Foundlings, which will launch with a “reading and rager” at Sterling Tap and Wurst on 1 May at 7pm.

I’m a co-editor along with my traveling partners Max Crinnin and Steve Coffed; my old Griffin colleague Darren Canham is or Art Director and Graphic Designer. The magazine of words and images features local poets including American Academy of Poets award-winner Crinnin and Just Buffalo Literary Center’s Members Contest winner Justin Karcher, among other great talents.

Artvoice teased one of the poems in our collection – Max’s reverent encomium to Wegmans, “Against the Many Targets” – you can read it here. We hope to see you at Sterling on the 1st. Until then, you can reach out to us through and fine out more at
