La Petite Zine Issue 21!

First Loves, New Loves, Pretty Mamas, and Old Men,

La Petite Zine Issue #21 is here. We swear, the entire time we're cross-country moving, reproducing, dissertation writing, and future sussing, we're thinking of you. Contributors, submitters, readers, and friends, you've been patient with us. A token, more like a behemoth of our appreciation, we've loaded this issue with old friends, new finds, and beds shaped like clam shells. Look for us at AWP, and we'll give you a magnet with a Queen Naked Mole rat extolling our virtues (see fig 1).

Meanwhile, come give some love, get some love:

Adam Peterson, Alissa Nutting, Anne Heide, Ashley VanDoorn, Chris Schmidt, Daniel Borzutzky, Deborah Woodard, Dora Malech, Emily Frey, Gregory Lawless, James Pate, John Boettcher, Kristin Aardsma, Kiki Petrosino, Kristy Bowen, Lucas Farrell, Mark Bibbins, Matina Stamatakis, Paige Taggart, Phillip Griffith, Robyn Art, Ronald Palmer, Sara Levine, and Stefi Weisburd

Bloof No Tell & Coconut Break the Reading Mold

Or perhaps scrape the mold off the marathon model. What does that mean? What are we doing? At very least, it'll be quite silly, and at very best we will wear costumes. In any case, fab poetry and good spirits (of all types) will abound!

Friday February 1, 8pm at Stain Bar in Williamsburg Brooklyn 766 Grand Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211(L to Grand,1 block west)718/387-7840

Come see me, my fellow Bloof Books authors Shanna Compton and Jennifer L. Knox, Coconut and No Tell authors galore. We'll warm you up and make you giggle, and maybe even swoon. Looking wonderfully forward to it!

Stain Bar proclaims itself: "so cozy, you'll never want to leave." A "unique arts lounge dedicated to local products and talent" and soft pretzels, wow! Apparently on the 31, the bar is hosting an "Army of Bjork" costume party, so maybe we can borrow the leftover swan gowns and braid nests.

For Girls, On Girls, And the Sisters are DIYing it for Themselves

On Lemon Hound, you will find a poem from Shanna Compton's gorgeous new For Girls (Bloof Books), a list of contemporary women poets you might like to add to your shelf, and what's looking to be some sanguine and sage advice on DIY publishing.
