CALLING ALL POETS, ARTISTS & FRIENDS
of the New Orleans Community
It is time.
On THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13 a critical gathering of NEW ORLEANS artists, poets and friends will assemble at The Gold Mine Saloon with a general reception between 6:00 - 8:00pm.
This event "STILL STANDING" will be a joining of hands for many of our beloved and special people in the New Orleans community whose great friendships and words and works are most vital to this region.
The event will feature a stellar cast of painters, poets, writers, musicians, artists and friends of all walks and minds.
It will also be a time for strength and for helping further our awareness of the great and incomprenhensible occurences that manifested on Monday, August 29 leading into these many nights and days since the landfall of Hurricane Katrina.
Please celebrate this great return with us, and also, as we celebrate the return of the 17 POETS! Weekly Thursday Night Poetry Reading Series at The Gold Mine.
YAWP: A Journal of Poetry & Art is also formally announcing the final call for submissions for its upcoming 3rd issue.
Those who will be making presentations on Thursday, October 13 at 8:00pm include:
DAVE BRINKS, MEGAN BURNS, JOHN CALHOUN, ROB CAMBRE, CHRIS CHAMPAGNE, PAUL CHASSE, JOSHUA CLARK, JOHNETTE DOWNING, GINA FERRARA, DANIEL FINNIGAN, DENNIS FORMENTO, ELIZABETH GARCIA, ANDREA GARLAND, GABE GOMEZ, THADDEUS CONTI, MICHAEL GREENE, LEE MEITZEN GRUE, NANCY HARRIS, KHALED HEGAZZI, CAROLYN HEMBREE, JULIE KANE, HERBERT KEARNEY, CRYSTAL KILE, JONATHAN KLINE, BILL LAVENDER, JARRET LOFSTEAD, JAMES NOLAN, BRENDA MARIE OSBEY, ADAM PELTZ, LEE QUICK, BEVERLY RAINBOLT, ROMANO, LEWIS SCHMIDT, JASON SONGE, RANDY VIDRINE, DR.
