Hey there.

I've been a part of this forum for a long time, but most of my old posts got erased since I haven't been active in a few years. Anyway, never got a chance to introduce myself.

I'm James P. Wagner, known in the poetry community as Ishwa. I'm a performance poet and an editor out here on Long Island and a part of the local community here.

I mostly like to work on poetry anthologies as I find them to be the best way to bring poets together :)

I'm also a publisher here on Long Island, I run Local Gems Poetry Press. And I host events. I don't know what I like better to be honest. :)

I just recently got my Masters from Dowling College and I don't really know what else to say. hehe, consider me introduced!
