We interrupt my reminiscing about my recent trip to New York to let you know that I’ll be reading some work at a super-cool literary event hosted by the Portuguese Artists Colony at Fivepoints Arthouse on Sunday.
Skip the Oscars and come listen to writers, playwrights and musicians. Featuring “Live Writing,” where four writers get a topic, write for 10 minutes right in front of you while a kick-ass band plays, and then you vote on who gets to polish it up and read it next month. It’s really cool, as described in this SF Weekly article, where they also talk about tomorrow’s event:
The theme is “Grownup Shoes” and will feature three guests for Live Writing: Tanya Egan Gibson (How To Buy a Love of Reading), Quiet Lightning co-founder Rajshree Chauhan, and The Rumpus writer Jeremy Hatch will battle colonist Daniel Heath.
Joining them will be the hilarious Scott Landers, incisive playwright Tim Bauer, and special musical guest Fox & Woman, hot with (all) new songs and wielding a Portuguese tongue. And, of course, January’s winner: Matt Stewart.
See that? I will be incisive.
Join us Sunday, February 27
