Cup and Pen puts Calamari Press back under the looking machine and pulls up the rorschachian images presented by their language-driven magazine sleepingfish. New Pages lit review claims “This is a journal where the swish of the cat’s tail might be appreciated for it metonymical qualities before the cat suddenly leaps off the balcony and into a cloud.”

Readings by Alexandra Chasin, Robert Lopez and Eva Talmadge are prescribed by those who care and want to see you reconnect with your inner beautymaker. Emceed by Rebecca Alvarez with as much love as is musterable.

Think Coffee is located at 248 Mercer Street and 3rd Street in New York City. BY SUBWAY: Take the BDFV to Broadway/Lafayette, the 6 to Bleecker, or the NRW to Prince Street

Cup and Pen Reading Series Continues November 7!

Cup and Pen Small Press Reading Series presents
Calamari Press with readings by Michael Peters and Be Blank Consort

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007
8pm-10pm
Free as a bird!

November is celebrate-your-local-experimental-poetry-hero and we’re showing solidarity by inviting the soul-saving Be Blank Consort to perform solo readings of text poetry as well as group performances of collaborative sound and visual poetry. The night is led by core members John M. Bennett, K.S. Ernst, Scott Helmes, Sheila E. Murphy, and Michael Peters. This not-to-be-missed performance will be followed by the you’d-have-to-not-be a fan-of-multi-media-spectacularness-to-miss-this performance by Michael Peters reading from the Vaast Bin (Calamari, 2007).

Join us for a one two combination where you’re smacked down with a collection of women zinesters reading from their work and helped up again with a zine making event (materials provided)! No one walks away without an ear full of opinions and a hand sticky with gluestick. Readings from Expertly curated by Zine librarian Jenna Freedman and dutifully emceed by Rebecca Alvarez.
