Once I survived the promotional photo shoot for the Underbelly reading, I was ready for the event. I’ll be part of a reading in Pioneer Square with:
underbelly every last Wednesday 119 1st Ave
sept 28 alysa levi-d’ancona diamond coal
paul e nelson eric m acosta michael crossley
nicole mccarthy nanya jhingran
zoe sandalwood lila bonow
The notion behind the prompt was for people who participate in the Poetry Postcard Fest. After 56 days of contraction (poems the size of a postcard) it would be an exercise in flexibility for one’s range in poetry composition, to let ‘er rip and use all that good spontaneous composition juju built up after 31 poems. (For me it was 40.)
That we’re bringing Pierre Joris to Seattle in October is icing on the cake. Email me if you’d like the early details on that, or come to underbelly Wednesday, Sept 28 at 8pm and buy me a belated birthday drink.
