Fericano has been the publisher of Poor Souls Press since 1976, and was the editor of The West Conscious Review, Crow’s Nest, and The YU News Briefbook, respectively, from 1977 to 1988. He is currently the editor of The Broadsider, an annual magazine of limited edition, numbered and signed broadsides that showcase previously published poems by both emerging and established poets, including Edward Field, Angelica Jochim, Dan Gerber, leah angstman, Ann Menebroker, B.L. Kennedy, Robert Bly, Joyce La Mers, Wanda Coleman, Klipschultz, Hugh Fox, A.D. Winans and Ellen Bass, among others. He is a benificiary of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the California Arts Council, and the Charles J. Parrott Foundation. Through no fault of his own he has been nominated three times for a Pushcart Prize, and in recent months several of his poems have been rejected by The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s, and The Paris Review. This winter, his lyric poem “Slim Whitman, I Love You,” will be rejected by The New Republic. Paul Fericano is the Executive Director of SafeNet, a non-profit group that works with individuals and communities on healing and reconciliation issues regarding clergy sexual abuse; a job that requires a sense of humor and pays even less than poetry.
