Talent Circus

The Corresponding Society and The Hostess Project present a Reading at P.P.O.W. Gallery!

The Corresponding Society gleefully presents a convergence facilitated by the Hostess Project, a special concern, located within Chelsea’s P.P.O.W. Gallery, that’s poised as an energetic point of organization for new poetry, literature, art, and music. This “thing,” which might be called a poetry reading, or “talent circus” quite honestly, is designed to welcome in a new decade of innovative verse and unfamiliar prose by functioning as a platform for an excerpt from the catalog of contemporary poetics. Five readers, most present locals with one import from the Bay Area, have been selected (by Master of Ceremonies Lonely Christopher) to represent in performance a small but powerful sample of the most important work being published today. Combined they form an awesome evening of kick-ass superhero verse staged in a gallery space dedicated to providing engaging experiences in art, sound, and letters. So, if you’re brain’s whetted, here follows introductory details and, of course, the names of this special league.

First the identities of the featured readers then the date, time, and location of this event:

RACHEL ZOLF
