This is happening in ONE WEEK:


From City Paper‘s Short List:

Tonight, Pittsburgh’s singular Lilliput Review puts poetry on the map — or maybe makes a map out of poetry — with A Confluence of Poets. The reading at ModernFormations Gallery spotlights poets from six cities, with a Rust Belt focus. Readers include: Sara Ries, of Buffalo; Chuck Joy (Erie); Diane Borsenik and John Burroughs (Cleveland); Ally Malinenko and John Grochalski (New York City); Maggie Glover (San Francisco); and Heather McNaugher, Kristofer Collins and Lilliput’s own Don Wentworth (Pittsburgh). BO 8 p.m. 4919 Penn Ave., Garfield. $5 or covered dish.

The New Yinzer, Fall 2013

Posted in Recent Publications with tags , , , on January 24, 2014 by 6GPress

has obviously been out for a while, but @6GPress has been behind on its electronic reading. Anyway, it’s awesome. Three Six Gallery authors have pieces in it –

Motel Sunsets, Installment 3” by Jason Baldinger,

Lost Yinzer: A Quitter’s Story” by John Grochalski,

& “James D. Van Trump and the Stones of Pittsburgh” by Scott Silsbe

– but by all means read all of it & look at all the art.

12/23 The Librarian/River Underneath the City Release Party @ Modern Formations

Posted in Events, New Releases with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 16, 2013 by 6GPress

Next Monday, TWO books are being released at ONCE! This is the “Best of Culture” according to Pittsburgh Magazine, whatever that says about our culture:

Book-release parties are always a blast. The author is noticeably excited and flushed, having seen years of toil on a project come to fruition. That feeling is contagious, as audiences universally catch the bug and get in the spirit. Join John Grochalski, author of The Librarian, and Scott Silsbe, who penned the poetry collection The River Underneath the City, as they share excerpts from their newly published works. Taylor Grieshober and Jason Irwin also will be reading at this shindig.
