Isaac Kirkman & Jamez Chang Poets- Five Poems Published in MENANCING HEDGE, Spring 2013 & Amazing Art and Photography by Erie Chang
Five Poems Published in MENANCING HEDGE, Spring 2013
by Isaac Kirkman & Jamez Chang
The two collab pieces are about Jeremy Lin, a very spiritual, and groundbreaking Chinese-American basketball player who took the NBA by storm last year. The third was a poem about my brother Joshua Alva Josh Kirkman, called Alva’s Wings, that Jamez at the buzzer helped to really sharpen and bring into focus. They’re topped off with two solo poems from Jamez. I feel very honored that my name will be connected to a cat like Jamez creatively forever, and that two cats from different branches of the Writers Studio could come together and make art. It’s been fun.
Erie Chang blessed us with her artwork, whose graphic vision really set the emotional tone of the project. On top of Menacing Hedge amazing design, are voice recordings done by Jamez and I of each poem. (His vocal acrobatics are must listen.) and Kelly Boyker Guillemette was such a great editor, who supported our collaborative vision. In the end it was a great process to be a part of! Cheers!

MR AMERICA DRIVES HIS CAR
by Michael Gregory
The National Writers Union will be having an open mic on Monday, March 18, 2012 at Fronimo’s Greek Cafe at 3242 E. Speedway Blvd. in Tucson. The lead reader this month will be the poet Michael Gregory, who will be reading from his most recent book, MR AMERICA DRIVES HIS CAR, which was just published this month by Post-Soviet Depression Press(postsovietdepression.com).
The open mic is for spoken word only, but is open to all forms of spoken word (fiction, essays, poetry, articles, polemics, etc.). So bring something to read!
The evening will start at 5:30 or so for those who want to have dinner; the open mic will start at 6:15. Fronimo’s is on Speedway just past Country Club (heading east) in a small strip mall next to the Walgreens. Parking is in the rear and can be accessed by turning into the Walgreens parking lot from Speedway and then proceeding to the mall.
