Lo Galluccio is a vocal artist, poet and memoirist whose new book, Sarasota VII will be released by Cervena Barva Press this September. Her first poetry chapbook, Hot Rain, came out on Ibbetson St. Press in 2004. Her two vocal CDs are Being Visited and Spell on You, both availalble on www.cdbaby.com.

Galluccio has been nominated for two Pushcart Prizes in poetry and read last year at the Somerville Writer's Festival in honor of the late Sarah Hannah. A Cambridge native, she has lived in Houston, Chicago, New York City and toured Greece with a theatre company from LaMama. Her latest work, "Denebola" will appear in Heide Hatry's forthcoming anthology with pictures of synthetic women called, Heads and Tails.
