Arrive on Wave: a celebration of Gil Ott

Gil Ott

Gil Ott was my first publisher. He was also a a major presence for many in the arts in Philadelphia, and was one of the founding and sustaining forces of our poetry community;  his memory and his influence are still strong.

I was honored to be part of a celebration of this man’s life, work, and poetry, at a book release and reading for Arrive On Wave: Collected Poems by Gil Ott, available now from Chax Press.
