On Saturday, August 27, poet and editor Geoffrey Gatza’s BlazeVOX Books hosts a book release party at Rust Belt Books to celebrate the work of three local authors: David Hadbawnik, Robin F. Brox, and Jonathan Skinner.

Hadbawnik’s previous books include Translations From Creeley (Sardines, 2008), Ovid in Exile (Interbirth, 2007), and SF Spleen (Skanky Possum, 2006). He is the editor and publisher of Habenicht Press and the journal kadar koli. In Buffalo, he directs the Buffalo Poets Theater, and writes on his blog, Primitive Information. His new book with BlazeVOX is Field Work: Notes, Songs, Poems 1997-2010.

Brox is a poet and teaching artist who handles publicity and marketing for Just Buffalo Literary Center. She runs the small feminist press and occasional performance series saucebox and writes the blog Ice Hockey Chick. She has published several chapbooks, but her new BlazeVOX title, Sure Thing, is her first full-length poetry collection.

Jonathan Skinner founded and edits the journal ecopoetics (, which features creative-critical intersections between writing and ecology. Skinner also writes ecocriticism on contemporary poetry and poetics. He earned his PhD from UB and this coming year is a Cornell University Society for the Humanities Fellow. His poetry collections include his latest with BlazeVOX, Birds of Tifft, as well as Warblers (Albion Books, 2010), With Naked Foot (Little Scratch Pad, 2009), and Political Cactus Poems (Palm Press, 2005). Skinner’s latest project is a book on the urban landscape designs of Frederick Law Olmsted.

The partys starts at 8pm. Admission is free. Refreshments will be served.
