Pussipo at Eyedrum Wednesday February 28th 8-10pm, AWP Atlanta Kickoff Reading


Pussipo is a high-octane collective of 160 women poets who view poetry as an act of skilled knife-throwing. As founder Anne Boyer notes, “Pussipo is SUPPOSED to wreck you.” Pussipo’s members hail from across the U.S. and Canada, and 20 of them will erect their carnivalesque midway at the sensational arts venue EYEDRUM (in The Mattress Factory), 290 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive (corner of Hill St.) in Atlanta (a five-minute cab ride from the AWP conference hotel) on Wednesday, February 28th 8-10pm. Get to town early, and come one, come all to the spectacle. Witness them sing loud their dynamo engines. Don’t bring anything you’re not prepared to lose. Preview show coming soon at Delirious Hem!

Books, manifestos, spangly creatures for sale, gift, and thrill! Suggested donation teeny-tiny $2 at the door. Readers include:
Rosa Alcala, Anne Boyer, Susan Briante, Catherine Daly, Lara Glenum, Kate Greenstreet, elen gebreab, Janet Holmes, Kirsten Kaschock, Amy King, Reb Livingston, T.A. Noonan, Danielle Pafunda, Meghan Punschke, Evie Shockley, Sandra Simonds, and Sarah Vap

Every Other Day

Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean! You'll find my rendition at Every Other Day. Kate Greenstreet's fab primer of new poets. Where you'll hear me cajole:

If anyone would like to make me a sort of ravaged Victorian riding habit? Please?

Please?
