Thank you for a great artistic year!
While my neighbours are setting off fireworks, I wish to thank everyone who has published both my poems and pictures in 2022.
It has been a very rich year for me, artistically speaking.
I thank William "Bill" Allegrezza, friend, poet, professor and publisher, who published my latest poetry book "gulp\gasp! in September 2022, 5 years after he released my other collection of poems "silviotrump".
I thank all the artistic directors who have invited me to their Festivals and poetry events.
I thank all the magazines, both online and in print, for publishing my poems and photos. I will post 3 of the pictures that were published in 3 different magazines in November and December.

Buying a book of poetry written by an independent poet and published by an independent publisher means A LOT, it means supporting literature and artists. Thank you!

Last but not least I thank Kissing Dynamite Poetry for nominating me as Best of the Net 2023 for my photos which appeared in issue 35 where I was also the Featured Artist. https://www.kissingdynamitepoetry.com/issue-35.html
