Paul Szlosek is a poet residing in Worcester, Massachusetts, and was co-founder and co-host of both The Poet’s Parlor and The Poetorium at Starlite Featured Poetry Open Mic & Reading Series in the nearby town of Southbridge. A past recipient of the Jacob Knight Award for Poetry and third place winner of the Worcester County Poetry Association’s 2020 Frank O’Hara Poetry Prize, his poems have appeared in numerous publications both online and in print including the Worcester Review, Worcester Magazine, Sahara, Radius, Concrete Wolf, Sikworm, Star*Line, Diner, and We Are BEAT: National Beat Poetry Foundation Anthology. Paul’s probably best known in the Worcester poetry community for his fanatical obsession with obscure poetry forms, and has invented his own including the ziggurat, the streetbeatina, the hodgenelle, and the singsangsong which he shares on his blog Paul’s Poetry Playground @ https://playground.poetry.blog.
