For those who are impressed with someone saying "umm" circa 60 times in 30 seconds, tune into the February 20th Columbia Universidad Rats Reading at the Dead Poet. I hosted. The readers were:
Slam Phenomenon: Rich Villar
The Chandler-esque: Adam Davis
Queens Native & Biggie Listening: Marco Fernando Navarro
The Serene: Adam Dressler
The Trio: Diana & Marie & Delgado
& The Closer: Tara Betts.
A special lips-closed-but-half-opened-gracias-smooch to Matt Griffin who made sure sounds, not echoes happened.
I am responsible for nothing I said that night and can only say there are many doppelgangers of me in this world, all of which like whiskey. And barettes.
Since I was at AWP Atlanta I think I was/am supposed to confess who I kissed, who kissed me, and gossip about other writers (attire, attitude, bad books) on the blog. The problem is that I kissed various people at AWP this year, too many to itemize. Blame it on my Nyquil carafe. I didn't listen to much gossip. It kind of bores me.
I would like to thank the lovely Lorna Dee Cervantes for attending the Casa Libre's Big Fat Hot & Sexy Reading at the Midtown Tavern. And Anne & Kristen for placing the event at a place that served tots (as in tater).
