Upcoming Readings & a Panel (?!?!) & Songs of the Week & POP & The Gold Mags

Looks like I have some readings (and a panel?!?!?) coming up in November…

I was asked by Alina Gregorian to participate in this MFA Alumni Publishing panel at The New School.  Here are the details:

MFA Alumni Publishing Panel

Thursday, November 01, 2012 6:30 p.m.

With Jackie Clark (class of 2008) Coldfront & LIT Magazine; Sharmi Cohen (class of 2009) Telephone Books; Justin Marks (class of 2004) Birds LLC; Alina Gregorian (class of 2009) Bridge, and Dan Magers (class of 2005) Sink Review.

Moderated by Alina Gregorian and introduced by Helen Schulman, fiction coordinator, the School of Writing, The New School for Public Engagement.


Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang Building, 65 West 11th Street, 5th floor (enter at 66 West 12th Street)


Free; no tickets or reservations required; seating is first-come first-served

Sort of neat.   Here is the Facebook invite too.   I can talk about all my POP and SOW (and LIT) experience, etc.  I’m excited/nervous!

Next is Thursday, November 20 at Barbes in Park Slope.  I’ll be reading for my friends at Leveler.  It starts at 7pm.

STORYSCAPE & LEVELER host a reading.

Join two local Brooklyn literary journals, Storyscape and Leveler, for a special joint reading featuring six incredible poets and prose writers representing the journals. Prepare to be moved, inspired, and maybe even to laugh or cry. Come on out and help us celebrate the rich literary landscape that is Brooklyn!

Featuring: Elana Bell; Ken Cormier; Jackie Clark; Garth Graeper; Elizabeth Howort and Martin Rock.

The following week I will be reading for a Boog City event at Sidewalk Cafe on Tuesday, November 27, 6.30-8.30pm  Brooklyn Arts Press was asked to participate so I will be representing BAP that night with other BAP authors  Martin Rock and Jared Harel.  I think there are going to be five other small presses reading at the event too.  Should be fun.

Also, more Songs of the Week, as per usual.  We recently heard from: Peter Johnson, Kiely Sweatt, Lauren Hunter, Dvd Copying and Camilo Roldán.  Song of the Week will soon be hosting contributors from The Best American Poetry blog so stay tuned for that.

This month’s POP is a little different than usual in that it features poet Jon Leon writing about the movie American Gigolo.  I think it’s good for my little series to branch out, be more flexible, etc.  That is probably good advice to follow in general.  You can check out the essay here.

And lastly, my boyfriend’s band The Gold Magnolias was recently interviewed for XM/Sirius Radio, which you can listen to here.  It’s pretty awesome.  The Gold Mags are currently on tour so if they are passing through your town maybe you should check them out?  I think they are great but then again I am probably a little biased…
