Samuel Simas Set to Join April 30th Reading

Samuel Simas is a graduate from the University of Rhode Island where he studied English and French Literature.  A native Rhode Islander, Sam makes the best coffee-milk north of Tower Hill Road and west of the bay.  His enthusiasm for quahogs, The Big Blue Bug, and dropping “r”s just to add them into words where they don’t belong has led him to found The Rocky Point Review, a literary magazine focused on publishing emerging and established Rhode Island writers.  He’s currently working as the managing editor for The Rumowicz Publication Series, a student focused publication out of the University of Rhode Island.  His work has been published in OPTIONS Magazine, and it is forthcoming in Steam Ticket, Writ on Water, and Slink Chunk Press.

To see Sam read and learn more about his new publication, come to the reading at 186 Carpenter on April 30th!
