Baltimore, MD 21201
Deep eco pré, Tina Darragh’s collaboration with poet Marcella Durand, will be published this fall as an ebook by Little Red Leaves. Darragh’s essay “Blame Global Warming on Thoreau?” is included in the )((eco (lang)(uage(reader)) forthcoming from Portable Press at Yo-Yo Labs. Along with Jane Sprague and Diane Ward, she participated in the belladonna Elders Series #8 (NYC, June 2009). Tina has no desire to maintain her persona as a mild-mannered librarian since Doug Lang included her in his blog on DC poets.
Doug Lang was born and raised in Wales, and has published poetry and novels in the UK. He came to DC in 1973, where he ran the Folio Reading Series in the late 1970s, and where he has taught writing at the Corcoran College of Art and Design since 1976. He was one of the poets representing DC at the recent Poetry of the 1970s conference at Orono. A collection of his selected poems, In the Works, is forthcoming from Edge Books.
