On the 16th episode of Next Up to The Mic, we welcome Jay Renzi who was the featured poet at the long-running Poets Speak Loud series at McGeary’s in downtown Albany, NY on September 29, 2014.

Jay Renzi is a poet, man of letters, idler and sportsman. Born in Quincy, Mass., educated in Newport, R.I. and an adopted son of Troy, N.Y., Renzi calls Newport, Boston, the White Mountains of New Hampshire and the Hudson River Valley home. The journeys and meetings between these places provide much of the inspiration for his varied interests. Jay was also was voted one of the area’s best poets in the Metroland Readers Poll in both 2014 and 2015.

Please welcome, next up to the mic, Jay Renzi.
