in the nows

hey bloggerissimo, fancy some contemporary international poetry? live in or near what this blogger affectionately calls 'the big ape hill?'. well, here's a poetry reading fer you on the 21st.

click on the image to get the full details. not all of these poets live in the u.s., so it's a one-time only kinda thang.




and hey, check out the drinks sponsorship. there's some creative organizing!

here's a scary thought: what if poets had big corporate sponsorships the way athletes do. as in if at every reading, a poet sponsored by Jamesons had to swill from a Jameson's bottle.

oh no!
Of course I pick today to search "syracuse poetry" in google and find a perfectly good resource, and realize after the fact that I'm about a year too late.

Well anyway my name is Bobby and I live in SYR and write a little bit of poetry sometimes too.
feel free to check out my blog (ignore the computer security postings - as aesthetically pleasing as they are, they're not mine)

oh - i'd really like to. It'd be an honor. I just fear i may not have the contacts needed to keep a site like that up to date.
how would i go about finding syracuse poetry information? is there even a syracuse poetry scene? that's the reason i searched it in the first place - i didn't know if there was one.

and thanks for checking out my blog!
