february 9

We’ve started out the week with some incredible weather and an even better meeting of the Writers Community.  Keep thinking about the upcoming WC chap book, because we will take submissions up to the end of February.

As for the readings:

Shaun Gannon: from Wikianswers.com (I’m pretty sure this is the website) “How do you say I am the pineapple in French?”  I think I can speak for everyone there in saying that it was everything we hoped for and more.
Garrett Cox: “Euphobia”  Check out his design in the new Muncie music scene article in Ball State’s University Expo Magazine.
Andrew Clark-Kennedy: A series of poems by Mark Cunningham featured in the online literary journal Segue
Tyler Gobble: from the New Yorker, “Plumbing,” by John Updike.  He also read a piece of his own, which was untitled.
Todd McKinney: Since our conversation somehow wandered around rabbits at one point Todd read Tony Hoagland’s “Rabbit,” featured in Three Penny Review.  Todd also read Dean Young’s new poem “Scenes from the Crystal World,” also featured in Three Penny Review.
Kimberly Bortnem: “The brain is wider than the sky,” by Emily Dickenson.  Kim also read us her poem which was written to use Dickinson’s style, “It is dangerous to trust only intelligence.”
Rebecca Patrick: from The Economic Naturalist, “Why do bureaucrats favor the passive voice?” and “Why did kamikaze pilots wear helmets?”

For those heading to Chicago this weekend for the AWP conference, enjoy and travel safely!


p.s. Some extras mentioned at the meeting:
The television show Extras, by Ricky Gervais
No Tell Motel, a website featuring a poet each week with several examples of their work
