Tony Puma to Read at Poetry on the Loose

This coming Saturday, March 5 Tony Puma will be the featured poet at the Poetry On The Loose reading series in Warwick. Here is all of the information on the reading from the host William Seaton.

Tony Puma will read his work at the next program in the Poetry on the Loose Reading/Performance Series. The event will be held in the rear room behind the Utopian Directions bookstore at 7 West Street in Warwick at 4:00 p.m. on March 5. Following the feature, others are welcome to read original work. Admission is free.

According to Puma, his professional work in marketing, advertising, and public relations taught him to write in a style that is “less abstract and more to-the-point” than some contemporary authors. Puma says he seeks to present “a view of life through the prism of poetry; seeing, hearing, and feeling, trying to capture emotions and relate them via words.”

Educated at New York University and Fairleigh Dickinson University, he has participated in a number of literary groups including the Italian-American Writers Association, Red Wheelbarrow Poets, Paulinskill Poetry Project, Poets House (NYC), and the South Mountain Poets. He has been a frequent contributor to open readings at Poetry on the Loose.
The next Poetry on the Loose reading will feature Paul Clemente on April 2.
