extended hiatus

Due to expanded commitments to my small press, I've been forced to cut down on some other projects. I would be delighted if someone else came forward to carry on this blog. Meanwhile, I hope some of the links and contacts herein are of some use.



Thomas Devaney & Mike Cohen: Philadelphia: 1/31/09

Date: Saturday, January 31
Time: 2 PM
Location: 3 Sisters Corner Café, Philadelphia

The Fox Chase Reading Series kicks off the 2009 season with featured poets Thomas Devaney and Mike Cohen on January 31, 2009 at 2 PM. The series is sponsored by 3 Sisters Corner Café in Fox Chase, Mad Poets Society and The Fox Chase Review. 3 Sisters Corner Café is located at 7950 Oxford Ave. (corner of Loney and Barnes), Philadelphia, Pa. 19111.

Thomas Devaney is the author of A Series of Small Boxes (Fish Drum, 2007) and The American Pragmatist Fell in Love (Banshee Press, 1999). Devaney has worked with the Institute of Contemporary Art (Phila) on a number of site specific, multi-sensory projects, including “No Silence Here, Enjoy the Silence” for the Locally Localized Gravity show (2007) and the performance “The Empty House” at the Edgar Allan Poe National Historic Site for The Big Nothing exhibit (2004). Devaney is a Senior Writing Fellow in the English Department at the University of Pennsylvania.

Mike Cohen has authored two collections of poetry, Poet’s Pilgrimage and For Reading Out Loud, both awaiting discovery and broad dissemination (perhaps posthumously). Mike’s work has appeared in the Schuylkill Valley Journal, Philadelphia Daily News, Mad Poets Review, and Poetry Forum Anthology. He has presented public readings in various bookstores, coffee shops, and libraries. Mike’s current project is the Poetry Aloud And Alive program at the Big Blue Marble Book Store in West Mt. Airy, Philadelphia.

This event is free and open to the public.
