As part of the San Diego Art Institute’s Poetry & Art Series, I’ll be joining a great group of readers on March 1. This serves as something of a kick-off to festivities celebrating 40 years of Fiction International, the journal for which I serve as Assistant Editor (look for more information soon on the main event May 15).
Headlining the reading are Harold Jaffe and Katie Farris, two great writers I’ve been fortunate to work with during my time in San Diego State’s MFA program. But there will be much more, including live music by Nathan Hubbard; Jimmy Jazz’s first reading in years; plenty of food and drink; fiction from some of my editor colleagues; and also an Open Mike following.
The event takes place in the Museum of the Living Artist, 1439 El Prado, Balboa Park. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Members are free; $5 at the door for others, though note well: if you bring some wine to share, you get in free!
By the way, I’ll be reading from my latest publication, scheduled to be released that very day by the fine people at Whole Beast Rag. (Though maybe if you’re heading to the reading, try not to check it out ahead of time.)
