His collection Better To Travel will be reissued by Poetry Atlanta Press in 2015. Kelley’s poetry, essays, short fiction, interviews and reviews have appeared in magazines and journals around the world.
Collin has also been chosen as one of 23 poets chosen for the West Hollywood Lamppost Poet Project of 2015. His face and one line from one of his poems will be featured on a banner in West Hollywood. This is an amazing honor for which we congratulate Collin.
