What have we been up to? Since the last newsletter, we have been at Viracocha a lot! The Free University of San Francisco’s first teach-in was held there, and Diane di Prima’s Vision and Visionary Poems class was wonderful. Get out of your own way poets and let the vision come to you! We also very much enjoyed the Viracocha anniversary party featuring the inspired musical stylings of Xandra (of Con Brio) and Fox and Woman, the February Anger Management reading, and the Poetry Mission new poetry open mic - all held at Viracocha.

Steven went to the Quiet Lightning reading at the SupperClub with Sam Sax’s explosive feature; and we both enjoyed the Mayakovsky film and reading of the poem “Revolution,” hosted by Jack Hirschman at the Reader’s Café in Ft. Mason. Finally, the Revolutionary Poets Brigade held a lovely reading in solidarity with the people’s movement in Egypt, honoring the brave souls around the world who are standing up for their rights and tearing down regimes not only in Tunisia and Egypt but also in Libya and even in America! Steven read a poem he wrote for the Libyan pilot who refused to bomb his own people.

This month we look forward to the Open Heart Poetry readings, hosted by Marc Kockinos and Virginia Barrett at Om Shan Tea in the Mission (Thursday nights); returning to Quiet Lightning at 15 Romolo, and Poetry Mission at Viracocha (second and fourth Thursdays); and Word Party, the poetry and jazz open mic hosted by Jennifer Barone, Daniel Heffez, and Ingrid Keir. Also, this week Thursdays at Readers  kicks off with David Meltzer and Julie Rogers, and I will be reading there with Arthur Sheridan on 3/24!

The deadline for ads and submissions for volume 10 is March 24. We will be planning a release party (our first!) for the next volume to occur in late April or May - details will be forthcoming.

Best,
Sarah
