Welcome to brendanconstantine.com

Welcome to Brendan Constantine's website. Known for his dreamy abstraction and the emotional ferocity of his work both on the page and on the stage, Constantine has helped to sustain the poetry communities of Southern California. Mr. Constantine serves these communities as a teacher of poetry in local schools and colleges as well as hospitals, elder care centers and shelters for the homeless. He is currently poet in residence at The Windward School. Brendan is also very proud of his work with the Alzheimer's Poetry Project.

Please see my updated calendar for 2014!
