Check out Maxine Beach’s story “Can I Get a Hallelujah?” here, and come listen to what she’s been working on next week–Tuesday, 4.29.14, from 7-9 PM at Stone Spiral Coffee and Curios, 2500 Sutton, Maplewood, MO, with poet Stef Russell.
Thanks to all those who listened and supported Prose/Poem (and me) last night on Literature for the Halibut. (And a massive thank you to Nicky Rainey and Eli!) If you missed it, you can still check the 4/7 show through 4/21 via KDHX’s streaming archive. The show included details on the Prose/Poem reading event series, the call for art, a reading of Eve Jones’s “Sleeping Giant” and “August Letter to My Solider in These Difficult Times,” as well as, a reading of two of my own flash fiction pieces. Action-packed fun, right?
Stefene Russell is representing the poem half of our first Prose/Poem reading. She’s generally a lady about town–what you’d expect from the culture editor at St. Louis Magazine. Check out the above link that details her last chapbook Inferna and tells you a bit more about Stef.
We are delighted to be hosting a reading by poet Eve Jones on May 12, 2014, and we would like to do something fantastic to mark the occasion:
We are asking for visual art submissions in response to Eve’s work. There are four poems posted on her website and linked to this post. Why don’t you stroll over there and take a moment to read these vivid, image-rich poems? If you’re moved to do it, create a visual response to one (two, three, four?) of them, and submit your work digitally to sarahkuntzjones at gmail dot com by 11:59 PM on Saturday, April 19. On the 20th, these images will be shared with the writing community (their own call for submissions will be posted shortly), and they’ll respond to your work. In culmination of this project, work will be shown and read at the event on May 12, 2014, at the Mud House, 2101 Cherokee Street.
To sum up:
- Respond to one of the poems (in this link) in a visual piece
- Digitally submit your work via e-mail (sarahkuntzjones at gmail dot com)
- Deadline: April 19, 11:59 PM
- Reading/viewing event on May 12, 7-9 PM
