Author's Bio

I am a retired NYC teacher, activist, and author of Selected Poems (Future Cycle Press, 2019), Contiguous States (Finishing Line Press, 2018), as well as five chaphbooks: The Cadence of Mercy, A Tide of a Hundred Mountains, That Country’s Soul, A Language Full of Wars and Songs, and Snapshots from a Battle.  I have been invited to contribute to the archives of the The Imaginative Representations of the Vietnam War Collection, Connelly Library, LaSalle University.  In addition, I served as co-editor of BigCityLit.com, and remain an Advisory Editor.  My two most recent books are also my first full-length books, and I find it ironic that at a time when I’m growing short of breath I’m being given the opportunity to be longer-winded.  Website: richardlevine107.com.  Check my two political music videos on YouTube: “Judge Roberts: One Man, One Woman One Vote” and “The Talkin’ Frackin’ Blues”.
