Michael McCarthy Poem Selected for Bard Annual 2016

3Dbook-ways-of-graceMichael’s poem “Kindred Souls,” from the Goldfinch book The Ways of Grace, has been selected for publication in the Bards Annual 2016!


The Annual is published by the Bards Initiative – a New York State Non-Profit Corporation dedicated to using poetry to help the Long Island community. The Initiative provides avenues for poets to share their work and aims to encourage and inspire the writing and performing of poetry on Long Island and create a welcoming community for poets. It is the core belief of the Bards Initiative that poetry is the voice of the people and can be used to make a difference.

Michael will be reading his poem on Bards Day, July 23, at the Walt Whitman Birthplace State Historic Site in Huntington, NY at 5:00pm. (Pretty cool place to read a poem!) If you’re interested in attending, your $10 admission includes readings from several talented poets, food and dessert, raffle prizes, awards, and more.
