Recent Updates

I curated/hosted a reading last night in Bushwick's (Brooklyn) Northeast Kingdom. It was a smashing success, despite a last minute change in venue. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported us or read, especially Rydell Bixby who came up from Richmond, VA!! We had 30 people show up, filling up the lounge, and people really dug it. Hooray for Bushwick Open Studios!!

-I will be curating several more events in the next several months besides the ones I have listed in the "Readings" section. One will be a midnight reading at a secretly disclosed location in North Brooklyn in an industrial park.
-I've also been asked to curate a show at the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center in late October as part of their "Book Art" show. Come the fall, there will be a reading series in place as well. Stay tuned!
