September 5 I’m playing a short acoustic set for Between Worlds, which is the opening for Brenda Stumpf, the artist who recently moved back to Pittsburgh, and whose work adorns the cover for my Vessels album. The opening is from 5 pm – 8 pm. I play at 7:30 pm.

7/10 Girls Get Lit @ Bayardstown Social Club

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , on August 5, 2015 by 6GPress

THIS MONDAY…

Bands aren’t the only folks who enjoy a good stage and this ain’t no sausage party. Join us at Bayardstown Social Club, where a few of Pittsburgh’s finest female literati will read poems and short fiction outdoors by the glow of patio lights and a campfire. We will have beer from Rock Bottom – Pittsburgh and we will end the night with a s’mores party, but we are encouraging additional potluck contributions. This will be a feast – both gastronomic and auditory.

Rain or shine. 7 pm. Free + open to the public

(if you ever wanted to check out Bayardstown without a membership, this is your chance)

Bringing together women from some of the various factions of the Pittsburgh lit scene, we have the following readers:

Angele Ellis watched Buddhist monks dance under a theatre marquee featuring her haiku, after winning Pittsburgh Filmmakers’ G-20 Haiku Contest. Her poetry, fiction (including excerpts of novels in progress), and reviews have appeared in fifty publications and ten anthologies. She is author of Arab on Radar (Six Gallery Press), whose poems won her an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and Spared (A Main Street Rag Editors’ Choice Chapbook). She lives in Friendship, both a Pittsburgh neighborhood and a state of mind.

Taylor Grieshober lives in Wilkinsburg, where she writes, bakes tarts, and speaks softly to her cats. She also directs the low-rent, high-caliber reading series The New Yinzer Presents. Recently, Taye Diggs began following her on Twitter and it’s probably one of the best things that will ever happen to her. She has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and the 2015 Best of the Net anthology. Follow her @harshcharms.

Deena November received her MFA in Creative Writing, Poetry from Carlow University. In 2005, she co-edited the anthology I JUST HOPE IT’S LETHAL: Poems of Sadness, Madness, and Joy for Houghton Mifflin. Her poems have also appeared in Nerve Cowboy, Chiron Review, Voices in the Attic, and Keyhole Magazine among other publications. In 2012, Hyacinth Girl Press published her first chapbook titled, Dick Wad. She has taught Poetry and Creative Writing at Seton Hill University and Women’s Studies and Literature at Carlow University. Currently she teaches at Robert Morris University. She recently created Staghorn Poetry Series readings and workshops. Deena lives in Pittsburgh and can often be spotted smelling the flowers with her babies at Phipps Conservatory.

Jess Simms earned her MFA from Chatham University. Her fiction has been published in Weave Magazine, and Ampersand Review, among others, and she is a founding member of the Haven.

Christine Stroud was raised in North Carolina, but currently lives in Pittsburgh, PA. In March 2014 her chapbook The Buried Return was released by Finishing Line Press. She works as the Senior Editor of Autumn House Press.

Hosted by Stephanie Brea, whose poems have been published in some places (just like everyone else). Thanks to her day job, she knows which of the -cores (hardcore, math core, grindcore et al.) have a hyphen. She is bad at math, but just calculated that she has been hosting or co-hosting literary events for 10+ years. She prefers the teepee method of building a fire to the log cabin.
