“With ‘Subtle Lisp,’ Nick Givechi shares a seat with the reader. A winding, conversational trip with whistle-stops at melancholia, elation, anger and hope. At each one, he is heard questioning what it is to be a traveler, by choice or consequence, in this world—offering suggestions to make the ride easier for all of us. Mostly, this book is a reminder that “the most dangerous weapons with which we are armed / are the shattered fragments of the human heart.”
— Fred Whitehead, poet, publisher, blogger and host of Fourth Friday Dog Ears Poetry Series.

Con·course | Arts & Scholarly Journal
Released June 2017
Location: 1045 Gallery (1045 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo, NY)
Con·course is our arts & scholarly journal that features interdisciplinary works. It seeks to express a kineticism by placing image and text in conversation with one another. The journal is not only a published work but also doubles as art, itself, in its treatment of typography, coloration and material design. Here, at this juncture, form does not follow function.
