Local author! Small press! With inspired rhyme schemes and use of poetic forms, Icarus confronts Israel Colón's struggles with trauma, religion, and relationships. Through a mercilessly honest approach to writing, Colón shines a light on the experiences of a man barely keeping it together.
A Philadelphia-based father, poet, and business operations professional, Colón has a bachelor's from Temple University and a master's in industrial and organizational psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. His debut poetry chapbook chronicles his early life as an at-risk youth.
