InDigest has put out a podcast for the reading I did. I manage to read poems & blather on about the 76ers. Check it out here.
There's a new ish of Sixth Finch over here and Lamination Colony over here.
I'm teaching tonight but here's a reading just for you:
WE HAVE CONNECTIONS & WE ARE GOING TO EXPLOIT THEM
Join us on Thursday, October 28 at 7 PM for A Very Special Chrystie Street co-hosted by Molly Dorozenski & Leigh Stein. Featuring Alex Phillips*, Lauren Ireland's former employer, and Lauren Ireland, Alex Phillips' former employee. Also featuring backslapping, boardroom cackling, dirty deals, & poetry. Yeah, it's a week late. That's because we do whatever we want.

*Alex Phillips is an amazing poet & adorable person. He actually made it on merit, which means that American poetry might be okay after all.
