Bad-Boys & Coyote Women from the Snake!

Lookee here—Medusa has stuck her nose into the SPC blog! Just wanted to remind you that Bad-Boy Todd Cirillo and Coyote Woman Song Kowbell will be reading at The Book Collector for yet another stirring Rattle-Read on Weds., May 10 at 7:30 pm, to release their new rattlechaps (Song's Lick Your Wounds and Want Again and Todd's Everybody Knows the Dice are Loaded). Also premiering that night will be Rhony Bhopla's littlesnake broadside, Tulip Stem, plus TWO new issues of VYPER!, the journal of poetry from youngsters 13-19. All this embarrassment of riches for free! Be there!

This is the last week to submit poems (deadline is 5/15) for this issue of Rattlesnake Press's flagship publication, Rattlesnake Review. We're working on Issue #10, which will be out in early June: send 3-5 poems to kathykieth@hotmail.com or to P.O. Box 1647, Orangevale, CA 95662; no bio or cover letter needed; but woe to those who send previously-published poems, or—worse—simultaneously submit! Pick up a copy of the last issue, #9, at The Book Collector (Home of the Snake), along with all the other free Snake publications—or check with me for back issues.

And for more poetic chicanery, both from the Snake and from the community at large, pull up a chair in Medusa's Kitchen (medusaskitchen.blogspot.com—or click on the "Kathy Kieth" link on the right side of this blog) for daily news of the NorCal poetry community, plus poetry, poetry, poetry, poetry, poetry...
