Here’s the official press release for my collaborative writing experiment/event with some of my fave poets in NYC that’s taking place at the fantastic AC Institute next month. The landmark I chose for my end of the collaboration: L’Amour Fou by Andre Breton. More soon!
Thanks to Astoria/LIC-based BORO Mag for inviting me to contribute poetry, my own and by other Queens poets, on a bi-weekly basis to their online publication. Check out my first entry here, which features a two-page excerpt from my collaboration with the talented Brooklyn artist Alexander Tarampi, who is helping me close out the final chapter in my long overdue poetry comic, obb aka The Original Brown Boy, a book that I’ve been working on since 2005.
Many, many thanks to David Berridge of Very Small Kitchen for publishing my new chapbook, From the Occult Diary of Hosni Mubarak, with images by Matt Jones, available for PDF download here. Nothing quite like a new e-chap of magick & poetry to round out (my) 2011! Bring on the apocalypse.
