@kateschapira Kate Schapira: Jan 10, 2018, you tweeted: "Women I know & care about have suffered from Joseph Massey's predatory behavior, so I am sharing this letter..." Who are the women who have suffered from #JosephMassey's "predatory behavior"? Your close friend #KateColby, #MeToofraud?
@kateschapira Kate Schapira: Truth is your female poet friend, #KateColby, happily had a *consensual affair* w #JosephMassey 2014-17. After he told her husband about affair (guilty conscience) & his book was accepted by @weslpress (her "personal dream press") she unethically #MeTooed him.
@kateschapira @weslpress Kate Schapira: Jan 10, 2018, #KateColby posted on her FB that #JosephMassey is a "serial abuser" w link to website, "The Poet Joseph Massey Is An Abuser." Same day, you (Colby's female poet friend in Providence) tweeted the link to the same site? Cc @BrownUniversity @mkimarnold
@kateschapira @weslpress @BrownUniversity @mkimarnold Kate Schapira: Accusing someone of "predatory behavior" is a HUGE CLAIM. Since you publicly tweeted on Jan 10, 2018 that #JosephMassey is guilty of "predatory behavior," can you publicly provide evidence he is? #defamation #KateColby #MeToofraud #litworldcorrupt #womenledactivism
@kateschapira @weslpress @BrownUniversity @mkimarnold Kate Schapira: #JeffreyEpstein is a true #predator. He had women scout/groom girls to pls him. 2002-05: He (allegedly) engaged in sex acts w underage girls. Photos of nude underage girls were found in his NYC townhouse. Pls be #responsible as a writer/woman when using "predator."
@kateschapira @weslpress @BrownUniversity @mkimarnold @kellywritershse @Afilreis @WavePoetry @Omnidawn @ShearsmanBooks @POETSorg @jenbenka @Poetry_Society @FourWayBooks @Noemi_Press Kate Schapira: I am advocating for the #fairtreatment of male professionals by female professionals in literary world. Your Jan 10, 2018 tweet about #JosephMassey's "predatory behavior" is Google search result #4 for "Kate Colby Joseph Massey." #litworldcorrupt #womenledactivism
@kateschapira @weslpress @BrownUniversity @mkimarnold @kellywritershse @Afilreis @WavePoetry @Omnidawn @ShearsmanBooks @POETSorg @jenbenka @Poetry_Society @FourWayBooks @Noemi_Press Kate Schapira: You also tweeted about #JosephMassey June 28, 2019, the day his Quillette essay was published: "But not all victimized people become predators, & he did." #Predator? Your female poet friend #KateColby ran a smear campaign - framed him as an abuser. #litworldcorrupt
@kateschapira @weslpress @BrownUniversity @mkimarnold @kellywritershse @Afilreis @WavePoetry @Omnidawn @ShearsmanBooks @POETSorg @jenbenka @Poetry_Society @FourWayBooks @Noemi_Press Kate Schapira: You knew that your female poet friend #KateColby had an exhilarating consensual affair w male poet #JosephMassey behind her husband's back 2014-17. Knew that #KateColby wrote #lovepoems about Massey 2014 on. But you call him a predator? #litworldcorrupt #MeToofraud
@kateschapira @weslpress @BrownUniversity @mkimarnold @kellywritershse @Afilreis @WavePoetry @Omnidawn @ShearsmanBooks @POETSorg @jenbenka @Poetry_Society @FourWayBooks @Noemi_Press Kate Schapira: #KateColby wrote numerous #lovepoems about her lover #JosephMassey, 2014-17. Many of these love poems are in Colby's "Engine Light" chapbook (@PressBoardPress, Dec 2015) & "The Arrangements" (@FourWayBooks, Sept 2018). #litworldcorrupt #MeToofraud

Massey also edited countless poems of Colby's. #litworldcorrupt
