Speaker and performer Fred Moten will be having a talk about blackness and poetry at REDCAT on March 20. It will surely be a literary discussion dealing with race and the world of poetry. Mark it down, academics and lovers of words!
Thanks to the Xiu Xiu crew, we found ourselves perusing a book haikus by band frontman Jamie Stewart. We then found ourselves down the Internet rabbit hole of MINIATURE GARDEN, a small book publisher that makes pretty rad work. The most recent release for them is an outdoor LA focused work by photographer Amanda Marsalis. She took a ton of photographs of LA plant wildlife effectively making a still documentary about all the green creatures found in our city.
Looking to get some work published? Well, VIA Publication is looking for people to pitch stories: send proposals to them through March 10!
Have you heard of Literary Death Match? It’s a rad LA literary event that sees new work being shared, live. This month they are teaming up with the Los Angeles Review Of Books on February 25 and will feature Diablo Cody, Molly Shannon, Susan Orlean, and more.
In news of the duh: the Los Angeles Times turned down Dylan Farrow’s now super read open letter to Woody Allen. Why are we surprised by this? This could have actually been something cool!
