Open Mic Announcement for October 2013

I just realized this is happening next week, and I haven’t announced it yet. Oops! Here’s an Open Mic Night I plan to attend later this month:

Saturday, October 19th
Curry College
Milton, MA
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Curry College, my alma mater, is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its student literary magazine, The Curry Arts Journal. The CAJ staff have planned two events for this occasion on Saturday, October 19th. In the morning, a CAJ Panel featuring previous student editors of the lit mag will discuss their creative endeavors during and since college, as well as the importance of CAJ to Curry’s history and culture. Later that evening, alumni will be reading selected works from the upcoming 40th anniversary CAJ issue, which will feature new work as well as republished favorites. I will have one old piece (“Writer’s Block”) and three new pieces (“Eve of Spring,” “Nightmusic,” and “The Critic and the Muse”) in the 40th anniversary issue.

The Open Mic Night will be held in the Large Meeting Room at Curry’s Student Center from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Hope you can make it!

Coming Soon: My review of The Mariana Hollow’s new EP Scars, Not Wounds will be online at Sonic Cathedral soon. Also,  I should pass the 25,000-word mark on my novel-in-progress this coming weekend! And if you’ve been following my “Chronicling The Craft” series so far, you’ll know what that means!  😉

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately next Friday’s Open Mic Night at Studio East in Walpole has been cancelled.  However, you can still catch me at next Saturday’s Open Mic Night at the Catbird Cafe / New England Wildlife Center.

Here are the details, in case you’re interested in attending:

Hope to see you there!

Mark Your Calendars: Open Mic Nights in July

I’ve been neglectful in the past of updating my website with events or open mic nights I plan on attending. This will change going forward. I’ve also been looking for a calendar widget to add to my sidebar, but it doesn’t look like WordPress has such a thing yet…?

Anyway, here are two upcoming open mic nights where you can catch me reading some of my poems:

Open Mic / Potluck Extravaganza*
Friday, July 12th
Grub Street Headquarters
Boston, MA
* Attendance for this event is limited to participants who RSVP in advance.

Open Mic Night at the Catbird Café
Saturday, July 20th
New England Wildlife Center
Weymouth, MA

Catbird Café’s Open Mic Night on July 20th is also Bellydance Night. So, in addition to musicians and poets, local bellydancers will perform that night. I’ve attended one Bellydance Night previously, and it adds a unique spark to an already creative evening.

I hope to see some of you at either event!
