Happy Birthday to the Sonnet Project!

Just realized today is the two-year anniversary of the beginning of the Sonnet Project. Which means yesterday was the one-year anniversary of its completion. Happy birthday to us!

And Will Shakespeare too! (Belatedly...)

The post where it all began...

Pub or Perish 2008! It's a Barroom Blitz!

Wow. I've never had this much press in my life. Check it out:


Yep, that's me in the photo from PoP 2 years ago, at the Peabody Hotel. But this year I'm one of the mentioned names, which is more pressure but also immeasurably cool. See details one post below, and come out this weekend! I need the support!

(Also, if you're in LR, check the inside cover of this week's
Times. I'm thinking of getting the ad tattooed on my back.)

UPDATE: NEW START TIME! According to the Times ad, the PoP 2008 festivities will start at 6:30pm instead of 7:00pm. If I read it right it's for "pre-show appetizers," but like I say I don't know when my reading slot will be, so just be aware. And please come!

Sonnet Boy Reads His Poetry THIS WEEKEND! Don't Miss It!

If you're in Little Rock and looking for a good time this weekend, drop on by the Arkansas Literary Festival in the River Market district for some literary fun and frolic. And once you've worked up a thirst for beer and poetry, come to the Arkansas Times' annual Pub or Perish fiction/poetry/essay reading, to be held this year at Sticky Fingerz bar & grill and featuring yours truly!

I'll likely be reading some more of my sonnets, and maybe some free verse and a limerick or two just to mix things up. Festivities start at 7:00 pm and go on till 9:00 pm or sometime thereafter, depending on how conscientious the readers are about staying within their allotted time. I have no way of knowing when my time will come up till I get there, so if you want to be a member of the Sonnet Boy Groupie Brigade, best get there early!

Beer, Buffalo wings, and sonnets. What could possibly be better than that? :)
