Vittoria Repetto's first poetry book Not Just A Personal Ad has won accolades; in a Lambda Book Report column, poet and reviewer Rigoberto Gonzalez wrote "Poems of intense sensibility and gorgeous imagery are a rarity these days; but this book of verse by a distinctly working class, distinctly lesbian, and distinctly Italian American voice is a must for all readers of good poetry." She has been published in Mudfish,Voices in Italian Americana, Rattle, Lips, and many other magazines and
anthologies. She has a chapbook entitled Head For the Van Wyck that contains a poem that her current publisher refused to print for fear of beingsued by Camille Paglia. She has been hosting the Women's/Trans Poetry Jam at Bluestockings Bookstore since 1999.

Drunken! Careening! Writers! is a monthly reading series dedicated to the proposition that readings should be: excellent, well-read pieces that have at least one thing in them that makes people laugh (nervous laughter counts), and don't run more than 15 minutes each.
