So excited to share the details of my first poetry reading as part of the National Endowment of Arts Big read event. My poem ” Survivor” is one of the 11 finalists selected for the series.
I’m so thrilled and excited to share this wonderful news with all of you. Today I did my first poetry reading in my local community of Jersey City writers. My poem“Survivor” was of the 10 finalists which got selected in the “Survival is insufficient” series hosted by the Jersey City writers and Jersey City Arts and Culture. So thankful to Co-Chair Rachel Poy for giving me the opportunity.
Inspired by the NEA’s Big Read selection Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, Jersey City Writers celebrated the triumph of the human spirit over the disaster.
The event was hosted in the Historic Apple Treehouse. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 16, 2006.
Looking forward to many more.

If we were having coffee today, March 17th, I’d invite you in for some coffee and cornbread. My husband made it. It’s delicious! He’s busy right now making corned beef and cabbage in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Perhaps you’ll stay for dinner. We’d love to have you. As we sipped our expresso, I’d tell … Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Michele Vecchitto
I am a thief I steal your words as they fall from your mouth I watch as you shrug off your ill-fitting garment and dance in the rain I capture the moment your face lifts slightly I memorize the way your beaming smile transforms the moment I explore the silence as you find your way … Continue reading People Watching – Michele Vecchitto
Throw your stones into these depths, and wish upon the darkest night. Change will settle upon each branch, Transforming this sleeping world. Yet we so small and intrinsically furious, Decide we have no room for transformation. While nature moves on regardless, Drowning our defiant scream in a silent green roar. Michael is a husband, father, … Continue reading Spring, A Force- Michael Erickson
