Earshot Reading

Last night I read at the terrific Earshot Graduate Reading Series, curated by poet and New School MFA candidate Nicole Steinberg. Nicole has edited the chapbook "First Offenders," a superb collection of Earshot readers from February - May 2005. It is well worth checking out.

On the bill last evening were several great writers from various graduate writing programs in New York City, including two poets with whom I read back in September at the Cornelia Street Cafe: Pamela Burger and Melissa Christine Goodrum.

I got a chance to try out some new pieces I had not read in front of an audience before, which is always challenging. As usual, "The Jethro Tull Story" got the best response, though "8-Word Poem (The William Carlos Williams Story)," also generated quite a reaction.

The details, for posterity:
