Poetry and taxes

Today is traditionally the deadline to file your taxes in the states, but because it's a holiday in the District of Columbia (Emancipation Day), you now have the weekend to get them filed. The new deadline is Monday. For the last five years or so, I've been doing my own taxes and e-filing them, which is fast and efficient. I owed again this year, but not as much as I thought, so I have a tiny jingle left in my pocket.

Because of some technical difficulties, my first post as the inaugural Writer In Residence at  Poets & Writers' new blog has been delayed, but is expected to launch on Wednesday, April 20. I'm finishing up the other posts this weekend. Watch this space for links.

My poem "Meeting Jeanne Moreau" will appear in the Divining Divas anthology from Lethe Press in 2012. The anthology was edited by Michael Montlack and is a companion piece to the acclaimed essay collection, My Diva: 65 Gay Men on the Women Who Inspire Them. The poems were originally supposed to appear along the essays, so you'll see all the authors from My Diva (I'm one of them) along with other submissions solicited by Michael.

Tomorrow night (Saturday, April 16), I'll be attending the Death & Taxes Poetry Reading at Bound to Be Read Bookstore in East Atlanta Village. The reading starts at 7:30 p.m. and will feature Karen Head, Dan Veach, Stan Fong, Cleo Creech, Alice Lovelace and many more. It's free, so come on by and hear some great poetry, support your local indie bookstore and light refreshments.

On Sunday night, the Atlanta Queer Literary Festival benefit at Eddie's Attic in Decatur will feature musical performances by Bucky Motter and Sonia Tetlow. It's an early show starting at 6 p.m. and tickets are only $15 per person or reserve a table for $75 (seats 4). There's also a Dinner & Show discount options now available for both Table and General Admission reservations. Save up to $5 per person! Click this link to buy tickets now!

Such a relief to have taxes done, isn't it?

Have a good weekend. Sounds pleasantly busy.

I'm glad to hear you have a jingle in your pocket. Hopefully you can set it aside for your next UK--France junket.

Thanks for the heads up on the reading. I might make it down there!

I am extremely pleased with this service. The representative was very cordial, and I received all of my documents in less than an hour. I would highly recommend this service to others.
