Idiolexicon Poetry Series, February 11

Hi there, CCA cats. It's Elliot the lab monitor.

I'm starting a new reading series next month. It will be a wonderful time and you should all come. Featuring CCA alum Myron Michael.

The Idiolexicon Poetry Series is a reading and concert series that will showcase innovative, challenging poets and musicians from the Bay Area and beyond. The Series will bring together poets who may not usually share the same stage: slam meets experimental, hip-hop meets academia. The point is ostensibly to bring together diverse work and audiences, but really the point is just to put together exciting readings. A lot of poetry—just like a lot of movies and a lot of music—is bad, so you really can't afford to limit yourself too much.
