On Wednesday, March 16, I will proudly participate in the Monkeybicycle Lightning Round! Reading Series, along with 19 other writers. This free event will be held at The Cake Shop, 152 Ludlow Street (between Stanton and Rivington - J, M, Z or F trains to Delancey) New York City, from 7-9 p.m.
The reading series, as described by Monkeybicycle:
This new quarterly reading series fuses quick, high energy readings with a broad range of voices--both established and emerging--into a seamless hour of literary brilliance. Each event will feature 20 readers, each of whom will read no longer than three minutes before introducing the next reader. No interruption from the host means a continuous listening experience. No guidelines other than length means maximum variety of form and content. Monkeybicycle's Lightning Round!Reading Series: a cure for the common reading.
Featuring: Paula Bomer, Vince Czyz, Scott Geiger, Jeff Grentharer, Michael Hickins, Suzanne Marie Hopcroft, Blake Kimzey, Lincoln Michel, David Moscovich, Dustin Luke Nelson,Steve Peacock, Edwin Rivera, Kathleen A. Ryan, Andrew James Weatherhead, and Katie Wudel, plus others.
This event will double as the launch party to celebrate Monkeybicycle's eighth print issue.
Check out "Point Pleasant Poet Performs in New York City" on BoroIndependent.com, about one of the readers, Steve Peacock. The NY Daily News lists it on their event calendar, as does Slice Magazine.
I'd like to thank Monkeybicycle editors Steven Seighman and Shya Scanlon for this amazing opportunity.
Hope to see you there!
