IAWA . (March 26, 2010)
Not Just a Personal Ad, written by Vittoria repetto, was published by Guernica Editions in Fall, 2006.

Vittoria repetto, author of Not Just a Personal Ad, joins a long list of poets who will read at the Rainbow Book Fair at CUNY Graduate Center Fifth Avenue and 34th St., NYC, Sat., March 27, 11:30 am-5 pm. She will read in the 11:30 am -12:30 pm slot.


repetto's work has been published in numerous magazines and anthologies. In 1995, she published her first chapbook, Head For the Van Wyck (Monkey Cat Press) and in 2006, Guernica Editions published her first full length poetry collection, Not Just A Personal Ad.

Since its release, 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.”
repetto is the vice president of the Italian American Writers Association and the editor of the monthly newsletter. She was a judge in the 2005 Publishing Triangle's Audre Lorde Award for Lesbian Poetry & Thomas Gunn Award for Gay Poetry and she has been hosting the Women's & Trans’ Poetry Jam at Bluestockings Bookstore since its opening in 1999.
