Tom wrote a damn good chapbook and we at CWP Collective Press published it. Join us as we celebrate its release. Fellow poets, Justin Karcher and Dan McKeon will also be gracing the stage and blessing us with poems. Blaise will be playing guitar and Ben Brindise will be hosting this very special event. Free admission. No alcohol allowed by request of the owners.

Tom Dreitlein is a poet from Rochester, NY. A two time TEDx Speaker, he currently works as a Teaching Artist at the Buffalo Center for Arts and Technology. He is a founder of UB Poets, and in 2016 he helped represent Buffalo at the National Poetry Slam. He wants to talk to you about poetry and other things you can scream along to in your friend’s bas...ement.

Justin Karcher thinks Tom is pretty cool, this is what he wants you to know about Tom's book:

"In map., Tom creates a geography out of thin moments, armoring himself in them so he can fight the good fight, using personal experience to enact profound change within us all. Whether he’s bleeding for his God or autopsying his heart in praise of his father, we are there with him, following his hieroglyphic eyes from his childhood home to a collapsing cloud near heavenly ears so we may voice our regrets and dreams too.What’s more beautiful than a young poet figuring out his maps?"
