Here’s to ABQ Resilience!!!!
It’s true: LA fell into the ocean. Or, rather, the two touring poets who were supposed to visit got swallowed by the deep sea of the recession. BUT we’re going forward with our first ever Local Poets’ Guild event: Verso Quatro. Four fabulous local poets are coming together for poetry discussion and performance and then we’ll have an open mic also.
The Heroic Burque Poets are: Michelle Otero, Carlos Contreras, Andrea Serrano, and Katrina Guarascio. The panel moderator is Richard Oyama, and the event is hosted by Richard Vargas.
I’ll also be giving a short welcome and a bit of info about the Local Poets Guild mission. Thanks also go out to Rich Boucher, Maggie Ross, Jered Ebenreck, and Zach Kluckman. A TON OF PEOPLE ARE COMING TOGETHER TO MAKE THIS A GREAT SUCCESS. (And the LA poets will try again in the spring.)
You won’t want to miss this!!!! Also this is going to be a quarterly event!!! Get in on the action early–you may be the next feature!!!
