Council member Antonio Reynoso and others joined the conversation on Affordable Housing I moderated in Bushwick last month at Radio Bushwick. He was joined by attorney Marty Needleman, Kunal Gupta of Silent Barn, AiB founder Chloe Bass, former CB4 member John Dereszewski, and Shawn Gallagher. Bushwick Daily covered the kickoff event for Arts in Bushwick’s discussion series. Check their post here.Comments closed
The wrap-up is posted here! Someday I will be more organized and use Mailchimp to send emails to everyone on one list. Today is not that day. *Thanks Zoe for the pictures!Comments closed
My first post for Thought Catalog! Readers tour my brain as I meander through Bushwick and Soho pondering the natural defenses women have against unwanted attention. Thanks for checking it out. I will be reading this JULY 10 at Happy Ending Lounge for Southern Writers Reading Series. Come raise a glass in anger.Comments closed
I am reading this weekend with Mariette Papic and Alex Morris for Writ Large Press’ debut New York event, PUBLISH! I’m looking forward to sharing the new piece as part of this cool site-specific lit experiment. Writ Large’s Chiwan Choi and Judeth Oden-Choi are ambitious, generous people who also write and publish; they have always made an effort to build and maintain a sense of literary community between LA and New York writers (and beyond!). The space and event they’re creating offers room for everyone who attends to participate (or not!) and share their ideas. Also, there will be a typewriter there on Saturday, so I’m excited about that. I’m excited to read this new essay, too. I’ll probably post it on my Tumblr soon.
I’m reading with many, many New York poets this Thursday at The Highwaymen NYC’s anniversary celebration. Full moon, lots of poetry, and a reunion with a few of the notorious 1441 alumni. I had a chance to talk with the series host, Elizabeth, recently. Since she started The Highwaymen series last year, I think her entire life has changed (mine too!). She puts a tremendous effort into each event, and I’m very happy to be part of a celebration marking the one-year milestone. I’m looking forward to reading a few short (but not very sweet) new poems. One is called “How To Stop War,” it came from nowhere one day on the subway and scared me, and I hope this one finds its way into print somewhere soon.
The reading takes place at Molasses Books in Bushwick, a still new-to-me spot where I have not yet spent nearly enough time or money. There is a FB invite which you can find online here, I think.Comments closed
