malepoet. is the newest work by PW Covington. In this intimate work, Covington explores places, people, and even himself, as he ventures across the American landscape. Written in the Beat tradition, this book will be shared and read by the next generation, and the one after. Come inside the mind of PW as he celebrates the death of the straight, white, male, poet.
PW Covington has spent decades crisscrossing the American continent, collecting and sharing poetry.
Both his poetry and short fiction have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, and he has been invited to perform from The Beat Museum in San Francisco to the Havana International Poetry Festival in Cuba.
A service-connected disabled veteran and convicted felon, Covington’s work stems from lived experience and an understanding of the Universal natures of sin and struggle, across cultural and geographic frontiers. Find his message in jail cells, down alleys, in smoke-filled back rooms, and out on the highway…always the highway.
Covington has published a novel, edited Indie literary journals, and collaborated with other writers and artists on a variety of socially engaged projects. This is his 5th collection of poetry.
