Phillip Giambri aka “The Ancient Mariner” - A product of the streets of South Philadelphia, he obtained his deviant perspective on life listening to Jean Shepherd on WOR radio back in the ‘50s.  Fleeing Philly at seventeen, he served in the military, has been an actor, hairstylist, stoner, janitor, author, drifter, recording engineer, hired hand, poet, a traveling salesman, barfly, banker, biker, bronco buster, announcer, mail-order minister, photographer, and “Computer Guru”.  He arrived in NY City in ’68, joined the Hippie pilgrimage to St. Marks Place and never left.  He’s attended too many schools to mention, studying nearly everything, without ever attaining a degree in anything.

He’s seen and done what others dream of or fear. That’s how he lives and that’s what he writes. His 2016 book “Confessions of a Repeat Offender” is a compilation of his performance stories and poems. His work has also appeared in "From Somewhere to Nowhere - The End of the American Dream" (The Unbearables 2017 Anthology) Eternal Snow: A Worldwide Anthology of 100 Poets with Yuyutsu Sharma," "Artists in the Kitchen," “Walt’s Corner” in The Long Islander, Silver Birch Press, NewYorkCityTalking.com and Revista de traduceri literare" (Review of Literary Translations) no. 5 Bucharest, Romania.

 

He produced and hosted a popular monthly spoken word/poetry event, Rimes of The Ancient Mariner for five years, as well as special collaborative events with other artists/performers; Barflies & Broken Angels, What the Hell Is Love?, The Losers Club, and Are You Dangerous.       www.AncientMarinerTales.com.
