Poetry Reading In Elyria- Streaming Live!

Poets are attempting to break the record for the longest poetry reading in Elyria, Ohio and you can watch it live on the web! You can see the live Snoetry video feed on my (Lynn’s) blogspot *here*. Also information about the reading itself, if you are in the area and want to know more. I can be reached this weekend at lynnalx@gmail.com if you want to say hello.

You can also watch it right on UStream. Search for John Burroughs or Snoetry Elyria (that’s him, on the left) and chat us up! We will be able to see your chat messages in real time as everything is going on.

I read at 10:30 p.m. EST on Saturday. We will have post-record breaking coverage of the event right here on the blog, with photos and video and more.

Thank you to the warm and welcoming poets of Lorain County, OH! ~Lynn Alexander

Bitchez Brew, New Reading Series @ Viracocha SF

The first Bitchez Brew Reading is happening at Viracocha SF, 998 Valencia Street in San Francisco this coming Friday, November 5th.  The lineup (not necessarily in this order) is as follows:

Valerie Chavez/Paul Corman-Roberts/Meg Day/Rebekah Edwards/Jonathan I. Hirsch/Kathleen Wood.

This follows in the tradition of the literary resurgence which has washed over the San Francisco Bay Area since the 2009 LitQuake Festival, whose interactive and multi-media potential has realized a vast audience not seen by Bay Area authors since the mimeo and small press revolution that enabled the Beat Movement.  We haven’t had our “Howl @ the Gallery 6″ moment just yet, nor do we necessarily need it…we simply want to make good on the promise of then and now, and the Bitchez Brew Reading Series, with it’s nod to Miles Davis Landmark fusion album of mind bending genre means to help promote just that.
