Hello lovely and local writers, artists, and friends,

I (Tim) am reading from my novel-in-progress this coming Wednesday, March 25, at Bar on A as part of the Guerrilla Lit Reading Series. Also on the program are Susan Buttenwieser and Sam J. Miller, both of whom seem radical in every sense imaginable. You can read up on them and the series here: Bring your friends, Romans, and good country people. The reading starts at 7:30 and is free.

Bar On A (or "Barona," nobody seems to know) is in the East Village, at 170 Avenue A, between 11th and 12th. The nearest train is the L (1st Ave); Essex St (F, V, J, M, Z) and Union Square (N, Q, R, W, 4, 5, 6, and L) will get you there in a 10-15 minute walk.
Dear spring chickens,

Just a small reminder that March is Small Press Month and EARSHOT's got your small press fix! Both readings this month are official SPM events, and the next one is on Friday, March 27th at 8 PM! As usual, you can find us at ROSE LIVE MUSIC, on 345 Grand Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn!

Our two small press superstars will be AMY LEMMON, author of Saint Nobody and representing Red Hen Press, and DOROTHEA LASKY from Wave Books, author of the acclaimed collection Awe! Three MFA readers will round out the evening in spectacular fashion, including Tanya Rey of short fiction-collective One Story!

Admission is a paltry $5, which scores you a free drink! Don't miss it!

For the entire Small Press Month event calendar, visit
please indulge us with your presence...
