AG Marathon – June 1, 2013

It’s official, the 12th Allen Ginsberg Memorial Open Mic Poetry Marathon happens Saturday, June 1, 2013, at 8P at Spring Street Center, 1101 15th Av, in Seattle.

Download the gorgeous poster created by Tessa Hulls here. Here’s the lineup:

8P – Featured Poet Jack Remick. He’s Beat, but he’s not tired and he’ll bring that Beat fire to kick off AG12. (Bio below)

10P – The Four Hoarse Men perform a selection of Michael McClure’s Ghost Tantras scored for multiple voices.

11P – Band of Poets

12M – The Bempire. Greg Bem hosts Beat and Beat-related movies, readings and your all night contributions.

5A – Sunrise reading of an AG classic. Howl? Kaddish? Wichita Vortex Sutra?

6A – 2nd shift, with breakfast. Are you an early riser? Can you make sure they did not burn the place down overnight?

9A – Lightning Round hosted by Paul Nelson. Bring your VERY SHORT (haiku-length) poems, as we move in a circle to hear everyone’s work. You can even improvise, but keep it 10-20 syllables and NO PREAMBLES. Lightning.

10A – Nadine Maestas hosts a panel on AG’s LGBTQ poetics and activism at The Project Room, 1315 E Pine, Seattle.

Jack Remick’s work: Valley Boy is Book Two of a series, The California Quartet. More volumes will be released by Coffeetown Press in 2013: Revolution and The Dirt Liberal. The first book of the series, The Deification, was released in December of 2011. Blood, A Novel was published by Camel Press in 2011.
