YES! Joey Nicoletti is making good. He is the author of the poetry collections Borrowed Dust (Finishing Line Press, 2011), and Cannoli Gangster, which was selected as a finalist for the Steel Toe Books Poetry Prize by Denise Duhamel (Turning Point Books, September 2012). Feel free to contact him and read some of his other work at

"In his first full-length collection, Cannoli Gangster, Joey Nicoletti deftly weaves cultural, familial, and personal memory into poems that are funny, profound, and moving at once. Exploring the truth and the strangeness of being Italian, American, and Italian-American, he reflects the subtle nuances of experiencing America’s cultural melting pot and the challenges of assimilation at a depth only poetry can reach. These are wry, wise, and deeply humane poems filled with images that are memorable and undeniably true."

—Dan Albergotti, author of The Boatloads, winner of the A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize
