3/21 Latitudes Poetry Night feat. Kat Giordano & Jason Baldinger @ Compass Coffee

7PM WEDNESDAY in Akron, hosted by Theresa Göttl Brightman & Steve Brightman…

In March, Latitudes will be hosting our first out-of-state features, Kat Giordano and Jason Baldinger, both from Pittsburgh!

Kat Giordano is a poet and massive crybaby in Pittsburgh, PA. Her poems have been published by Indigent Press, The Cincinnati Review, Rat’s Ass Review, Up The Staircase Quarterly, and others. They have also been known to show up trembling on people’s doorsteps in the middle of the night, too traumatized to explain what they’ve seen. She is the co-editor of Philosophical Idiot and can usually be found overindulging in her shoddy mental health on Twitter at @giordkat or at katgiordano.com

Jason Baldinger is a poet hailing from Pittsburgh. He’s the author of several books the most recent of which, the chaplet, Fumbles Revelations (Grackle and Crow) is available now, and the collection Fragments of a Rainy Season (Six Gallery Press) which is coming this winter. Recent publications include the Low Ghost Anthology Unconditional Surrender, Uppagus, Lilliput Review, Rusty Truck, Dirtbag Review, In Between Hangovers, Your One Phone Call, Winedrunk Sidewalk, Anti-Heroin Chic, Nerve Cowboy Concrete Meat Press, Zombie Logic Press, Ramingo’s Porch, Blue Mountain Review, Red Fez and Heartland! Poetry of Love, Solidarity and Resistance. You can hear Jason read some poems at jasonbaldinger.bandcamp.com

As always, our features will be followed by an open mic!
