1615 California Street, Suite 515

Please join the Denver Quarterly and Coach House Books for an off-site AWP reading on Friday, April 9, from 3 - 6 pm at The Dikeou Collection, located in downtown Denver, just a two-block-walk from the Colorado Convention Center. There will be free wine and snacks, and no charge for the event.

Coach House will be presenting The Cross-Border Avant-Garde Extravaganza, featuring Canadians Christian Bök (Eunoia), Jen Currin (The Inquisition Yours), Jon Paul Fiorentino (The Theory of the Loser Class) and kevin mcpherson eckhoff (Rhapsodomancy) and Americans Rachel Levitsky (Neighbor) and K. Silem Mohammad (The Front). Hosted by Coach House senior editor Alana Wilcox, it promises to be a phenomenal afternoon of out-there poetry, with Flarf, surrealism, visual poetry and more! A Peace Bridge of Poetics!

Later this month, I will be at Blue Metropolis as a host for this:
