LA reading & generative poetry workshop + other news!

December 18, 2009

Dear friendlies:

Just a quick note to let you know that I’ll be giving my last reading for 2009 from The Heart’s Traffic tomorrow night (Friday, Dec. 18, 5-8pm) at Yi HwaRo restaraunt (3465 W 6th St, Ste 130, Los Angeles, CA 90020)! I’ll also be running a generative poetry workshop after the reading so bring your notebooks & pens if you want to write.
