COME SEE ME READ

.

I AM GOING TO READ YOU A STORY

IN A BRIGHTLY COLORED T-SHIRT

OR A TASTEFULLY CUFFED BUTTON-DOWN

LIVE AND IN PERSON

at the IPRC, Thursday, January 22nd, where sunlight streams in the windows and there is as much mis-matched cardstock as you can eat (and the cheapest copies in town!)

BURN THE DATE INTO YOUR MEMORY.

Seven p.m. sharp, followed by an open-mic. (YOU COULD READ TOO)

I’ll be reading a surprise. As an alternative to the surprise, what would you like me to read? If you could have your choice from the following topics, which one would you pick?

hitch-hiking
train-riding
nature-writing
queer-life
the-fantastical
my obscene privilege
a blend of all six (you’ll have to wait for the book)

I will also sell you outdated issues of my zine, which has more typos and worse writing than my blog (but lots of stories you haven’t read)

Come on down, people, and see me trip over my own sentences! I just got my hair cut like Joey from Full House!

  1. train riding and hitchhiking all the way!

    I want to flog myself for not being able to make it. (Being that I’m in Southern California and all)

    Anyway you can record it?

  2. Train-hopping plz

    You should make a video of this and put it up on Youtube. That shit would get more hits than Bubb Rubb and you’d be like an insta-internet-celebrity and get made fun of on South Park!

  3. Widerstand- might read about trains. Might be a surprise! You’ll just have to show up anyway. But you have to print out your profile pick and tape it to your face, so I can recognize you. 🙂

    Sloth- don’t flog yourself! Maybe I’ll go on tour!

    Roving- your comments are hilarious. What is Bubb-Rubb? You say I’d be famous, but you don’t know what a terrible reader I am. Also, I write the most unnatural-sounding paragraphs known to man. That’s why they’re so special. Because as you read them, you’re thinking- I will never hear this spoken aloud. It’s a physical impossibility.

  4. THA WHISTLES GO WOOOOO-WOOOOOOOO. BUT ITS ONLY IN THA MO-NIN. ITS LIKE AN ALARM CLOCK, BUT YOU SPOSA BE UP ANYWAYS COOKIN BREKFIS

    Yes, I think you can be more famous than him.

    I’m sure it can’t be that bad sounding. If you suck at reading, just do some pre-reading boozin. Then you have a convenient excuse if you fuck up. Brilliant plan imo.

    It’s good to have a unique style. People would be like “hey look at this chick, she just doesn’t give a crap about standard paragraph structure. She’s a literary rebel, man. So awkward, yet… so COOL.”

  5. I would want to hear you read Phillips Story or the other story with the woman in the treehouse. But failing that I think your train hopping hitchiking stories come complete with queer, privilege, nature, and fantastical-ness embedded, and I think people like to listen to those things better when they are in story form. Americans want to consume their premises on the sly, vaguely hidden in plain sight with plenty of entertainment value.

  6. Hm, I tried posting this comment earlier but I don’t see it. Apologies if it shows up twice.

    I will most likely be there! Although I have someplace to be right after, and may have to leave early. I like hearing about the people that you meet. 🙂
