3 Congrats and a Reading April 11

Congratulations go to Ala Benson, Andrew Paquet, and Don McIver for getting their villanelles published in the Weekly Alibi. All three, and anyone wanting to read or listen to villanelles, are invited to the Projects (3614 High St. NE) at 7:00 pm on Monday April 11th for a reading—and a gift-certificate-giving-away!!! Thanks to Acequia.

Shout-out also goes Alibi Arts Editor John Bear’s sense of humor for saying this:

“I originally offered no prizes other than the glory of seeing your verse in print, but the good folks at the Local Poets Guild have offered to have a poetry reading for everyone who entered. … Thanks guys, you made me look cheap and uncaring.”

That was our first reference in the newspaper!!!!
