Reading in February…maybe?

It isn’t entirely confirmed, but I possibly have a reading coming up the end of next month. Last I heard, the powers-that-be were still figuring out the schedule and such, but if it all works out I’ll be reading at the UAG in February for the series run jointly by Albany Poets and Jawbone.

If you’ve never been to one of these, you should go. It’s a pretty cool series. No open mic, just two featured poets: usually one “community” poet and one “academic” poet (whatever those words might mean to you). They have it at the Upstate Artists Guild art gallery in downtown Albany, on the second and fourth Fridays of the month.

As I said, this isn’t set in stone, so you didn’t hear it from me (Mary Panza might hurt me). Check back here in a while, or at the Albany Poets website or the UAG website for more information.

But keep your schedule clear for the last Friday in February. You know. Just in case.

Thank you

Thanks to everybody who came out to the reading last night. I had a good time. Hopefully I wasn’t too boring, and didn’t scare too many of the Sienna students that came with their prof.

Also, my apologies to the man I hit in the head when I threw a crumpled up poem out into the audience. I was just being a Radical Poet, and didn’t mean anyone harm.

Reading in November

It looks like the Albany poetry scene is once again scraping the bottom of the barrel, because I’m doing a featured reading at an upcoming open-mic night. It’s similar to the one I did back in January: an open-mic for all, plus a featured reader (namely, me) who does 15-20 minutes of stuff. Please come. Here’s all the info:

I hope people can make it out to this one. I plan on reading new stuff. Maybe there will be door prizes. Who knows.

Best Poem

I just got published in Best Poem, a new literary journal on the Interweb. Here’s a direct link to my poem, “At the New York State Museum”.

Best Poem is a fairly eclectic journal that publishes a single poem every few days as a blog-style post. I recommend subscribing to the RSS feed. That is, assuming you: (a) enjoy poetry; and (b) know what an RSS feed is. If neither of those apply to you, well, never mind then.

OTHER:EIGHT

I’m in the new issue of OTHER:, the lit mag put out by the people at Albany Poets. You can read some of the magazine at the site, but if you want a hard-copy, you’re going to have to come to the “release party” this Tuesday at Valentine’s (17 New Scotland Ave., Albany). Show up around 7:30pm. There will be an open-mic. And copies of OTHER:EIGHT for the taking. And beer. Don’t forget the beer.
