ALL ABOARD The Poetry Ville Express featuring Lee Ann Brown * Wanda Phipps * Mark Statman * Jeffrey Cyphers Wright

Go on an adventure as four poets follow their muses through the untamed realms of Poetry Ville — from avant romantic to nouveau commentary — surreal to pastoral — lyric to edgy — and erotic to quixotic.  Urbane grit served up with a side of Southern charm and a big old heaping of “holy shit.”

LIT CRAWL MANHATTAN PRESENTS:

LOVE: THE GOOD AND THE BAD

Love, sweet love…. It’s good to us, it’s bad to us, it’s downright dirty and rotten. Yet we keep going back, hungry for more.

Join We Three Productions for an evening of tales about this darling little beast we call LOVE.

WHEN: Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 8pm

WHERE: 2A on 2nd Street and Avenue A, 2nd Floor, NYC

WHY: Because you know you want it

WHO: Below

Maggie Estep has published seven books and recorded two spoken word cd’s. Her work has been translated into four languages, optioned for film, and frequently stolen from libraries. She lives in Hudson, NY.

Harold Dean James is the founder of We Three Productions responsible for theatre production, prose and poetry readings over the past twenty years. He is a published poet and an award winning playwright.

Wanda Phipps is a writer/performer and author of six books including Field of Wanting: Poems of Desire and Wake-Up Calls: 66 Morning Poems. She has received awards from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the National Theater Translation Fund, and others. She’s curated a reading series at the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church and written about the arts for Time Out New York, Paper Magazine, and About.com.

Marie Sabatino has been telling stories at venues all over NYC for the last ten years. Her work has appeared in a number of small publications, while rejections have come from some of the largest. Over her desk hangs a hand-written note from The New Yorker magazine, most likely, penned from a kind and sympathetic intern, which says, “We’re going to pass, but please do send again.” She hates that she loves this rejection.

Susan Shapiro’s work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, L.A. Times, Newsweek, Salon, Daily Beast, Marie Claire, Cosmo and Psychology Today. She’s the author of 9 books including Five Men Who Broke My Heart and Lighting Up and the upcoming coauthored memoir The Bosnia List. She teaches writing at the New School and NYU.

SUNY FARMINGDALE’S VISITING WRITERS PROGRAM

Featured Reader: Wanda Phipps
Thursday, October 12th, 2006–11:00am  SUNY Farmingdale
Ward Hall Great Room
Farmingdale, Long Island

Coordinators: William Austin & Margery Brown

www.farmingdale.edu


Here’s a message from Rebecca Moore the co-curator of an event I’m involved with happening this Friday night. Hope you can make it:

LOTS OF BEAUTIFUL MOXIE  Songs of Rebellion II!

Hello Friends…

I co-curate this event with the amazing souls at Issue Project Room.

We are already declaring it a tradition! Cause we know we must keep highlighting songs of rebellion and uprising and protest… must keep encouraging those songs to be written, make a place for those songs to be continually sung, support the artists who sing them, and bring people together to hear them. New ones, old ones – we want to hear all of them.

We use the term “song” loosely and abstractly… the evening is part musicians and singers, but also part film (visual songs, in my book) and part spoken word (songs of the heart and soul). We have to keep each other buoyed up between rallies, marches, and administrations… so you can keep your heart strong and chin up. The artists can come with just about anything related to a person standing up against status quo – it can even be about rebelling against rebelling – – as long as we have on display all the beautiful moxie people can be made up of.

please come hang – get your ire up and your game on…

Friday, June 9, 2006 – At ISSUE PROJECT ROOM
(everybody’s favorite music space in the big silo right on the Gowanus Canal):

Songs of Rebellion II!
