Jill Abram introduces a poetry salon with a trio of HappenStance poets

The unique and acclaimed Stablemates poetry salon is an initiative of the poet Jill Abram, who created and curates the reading series which she brings to StAnza for 2019. Each Stablemates event features three poets from one publishing house. Today Jill interviews and invites readings from Helena Nelson, herself a prize-winning poet as well as the editor and publisher of the Michael Marks award-winning HappenStance Press, along with Peter Daniels and Ramona Herdman, two of the poets she has published. Peter Daniels is a London-based poet and translator from Russian, and Ramona Herdman’s HappenStance chapbook, Bottle, was the 2018 PBS Spring Pamphlet Choice.
