Attention: Saturday, December 12 is the Montage Literary Arts Journal release event. The event will be starting at 7 pm at the Cafe Paradiso in Urbana, IL. This will also be the first opportunity to pick up the newly printed fall 2009 edition of the journal. It’s a particularly exciting event for me as one of my pieces is being published in this edition. The piece is a poem titled, “The Buttonmaker” – a pseudo-ekphrastic on a character from Henrik Ibsen’s Peer Gynt (finally an Ibsen reference! this blog hasn’t seen that in ages). There’s a lot of other good stuff this semester as well. So, you know, come pick up a copy and have a read. I hope to see the all encompassing “you” there!
