Alum Kevin Carey’s Poetry Forthcoming Within KY Publishing of North Carolina Anthology
FDU MFA alum Kevin Cary’s poetry is forthcoming in “Getting Old,” an anthology which will examine “a range of voices [to] ponder the ravages of the body, familial duty, love, grief, and mortality,” according to editor Ashley Parker Owens. The 240-page volume of fiction and poetry covers, uncovers, and discovers “a worthy goal and one that evolves over years of searching, sacrifice, and maybe even satisfaction.” The book is slated to be released in late September from KY Publishing of North Carolina.
Kevin Carey teaches in the English Department at Salem State University. He has published two books – a chapbook of fiction “The Beach People,” from Red Bird Chapbooks (2014) and a book of poetry “The One Fifteen to Penn Station,” from Cavankerry Press, N.J. (2012). He co-directed and produced a 2013 documentary film about New Jersey poet Maria Mazziotti Gillan, called “All That Lies Between Us” and is currently working on a documentary about Salem poet Malcom Miller. A new collection of poems, “Jesus Was a Homeboy,” (also from Cavan Kerry Press) is due out in the fall of 2016 . Kevincareywriter.com
