East of Edith Features Jenn Givhan April 2

Monday Night at 7pm we have our regular open mic at the Projects (3614 High Street NE, east of edith and just north of candelaria through the open garage doors). Rich Boucher will be our host and if you’re familiar with his mind in any form, whether writing, hosting, or chattering, then you’ll know he’ll be getting up to some kind of stellar surprise. Our feature this week April 2nd is a very talented poet we’re happy to welcome back to the stage, Jenn Givhan.

Jennifer Givhan was a 2010 PEN Center USA Emerging Voices Fellow, as well as a  finalist in the 2011 St. Lawrence Book Award Contest through Black Lawrence Press.  Her work has appeared widely, most recently in Rattle, The Los Angeles Review, Stone Telling, The Acentos Review, Crab Creek Reviewand The Southwestern Review. Originally from the Southern California desert, she now teaches composition at CNM and is working on her first novel In the Time of Jubilee. You can visit Jennifer online at http://jennifergivhan.com.

Then the next week, April 9th, our feature will be Emily Morelli.

Come join us to listen to great poetry! Come join us to share your own work or other favorites!

Hope to see you!
