Vouching For Atlanta

Atlanta! I’m here! I’ve never been to Atlanta but thanks to my friends Laura Straub and Matt Sailor, I’m here now. Get at me!

Tonight at 8 pm (November 9th, 2012 if you’re checking the calendar) I’ll be at The Goat Farm Art Center‘s Warhorse Coffeeshop. Hosted by Vouched ATL in collaboration with New South, the literary journal of Georgia State University, I’m one of five readers in a night that should be a blast. I’ll also be reading with:

Carrie Murphy, whose first collection of poems, PRETTY TILT, was released by Keyhole Press in 2012.

Kate Sweeney, who runs Atlanta’s True Story reading series and whose first book, AMERICAN AFTERLIFE, is out on UGA Press in 2014.

Jamie Iredell is the author of, most recently, The Book of Freaks. In 2013, Future Tense Books will release a collection of essays.

Amber Sparks, whose debut collection, MAY WE SHED THESE HUMAN BODIES, is just out from Curbside Splendor. You can find her most days @ambernoelle on Twitter or www.ambernoellesparks.com

Come join us! I’d love to see you there.
