Poetry Bits & Bobs

The great poet and editor Sam Rasnake has a new chapbook, Inside A Broken Clock, coming from Finishing Line Press. You can pre-order it now until October 15. Speaking of Finishing Line, I'm hosting a reading by Atlanta poets who have been published by the press on Thursday, Sept. 30, 7:15 p.m. at the Georgia Center for the Book auditorium in the Decatur Library. This is part of the Poetry Atlanta series and will feature JC Reilly, Eve Hoffman, Bob Wood, Ann Lynn and Jenny Sadre-Orafai. It's free, so mark your calendars.

Congrats to poet Ed Madden, whose poem "Jubilate" won the Atlanta Queer Literary Festival broadside contest. You can read the poem at this link. The limited edition broadside will be on sale during the Oct. 13-16 festival and Ed will be on hand to read his winning poem. C. Dale Young was the judge for the contest.

Tomorrow night (Aug. 21) I'm going to read some new poems at the Hot! Hot! Hot! Poetry Reading at Bound to Be Read Books in East Atlanta Village. The evening begins at 7:30 p.m. and features Marissa McNamara, Rupert Fike, JC Reilly, Cleo Creech, Alison Ross, Jeff McCord, Michelle Newcome, Jef Blocker, Alice Teeter, Timothy Wright, Maudelle Driskoll, Don Perryman, Donovan Perry, Libby Ware, Mose Hardin and Franklin Abbott. Should be a fab evening from an eclectic bunch of local poets.

I still don't know how you have time to do your own writing or anything else with all the stuff you're involved in.

I'm gonna try to make it to Hot Hot Hot, especially since you'll be reading new poems, Collin. I just recieved JC's book in the mail, and will order Sam's ASAP. Finishing Line does a great job, both with the poets they publish and the quality of their books. The paper, artwork, and finishing is conisitently top-notch.
