Joseph Mosconi with Sarah Galvin & Robert Lashley
Two Western Washington poets, Sarah Galvin and Robert Lashley, join Los Angeles based writer and curator Joseph Mosconi, in an evening celebrating new work. Seattle poet Sarah Galvin is the author of Ugly Time (Gramma/Black Ocean), The Three Einsteins and The Best Party of Our Lives (Sasquatch). A contributor to The Guardian, Vice and The Stranger, she has also worked with the Bureau of Fearless Ideas. Bellingham poet Robert Lashley, author of The Homeboy Songs (Small Doggies Press), was a 2016 Jack Straw Fellow and a nominee for a Stranger Genius Grant. His poetry has been published in Many Trails to the Summit and It Was Written, an anthology of poetry inspired by hip hop.
Joseph Mosconi is a writer and taxonomist. He co-directs the Poetic Research Bureau and, with Andrew Maxwell, curated This Known World at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Joseph Mosconi’s book, Ashenfolk (Make Now Press) is a 10 inch box set of minimalist poetry related to “chiropteric burglary, miscast spells, sentient AI, elvish folklore, heavy metal, counter-hippie cybernetics.” We’ll hear some creative, edgy and exuberant work tonight, so don’t miss this.
