Switchback's Jessica Bozek reading at Stain of Poetry
Check out the calendar! Formerly the MiPO Reading Series (2006 and 2007), the series name changed when Amy King resigned as editor-in-chief from the online magazine, MiPOesias, in May 2008. Life took over, as did other projects and employment responsibilities, but Amy vowed to carry on the series, with a lot of help from the new co-curator, Ana Božičević. The readings are held on the last Friday of every month (7 – 9 p.m.) After three years at Stain Bar, in the summer of 2009 we moved to our wonderful new venue, Goodbye Blue Monday in Brooklyn. An art and music space, library, bar, sculpture garden & magic cave, Goodbye Blue Monday is at 1087 Broadway in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn: to get there, take the JMZ trains to Myrtle Ave or the J to Kosciusko St, walk a few blocks to the corner of Dodworth St & Broadway, and take a plunge. At each reading, you will hear a range of poetries and reading styles, as well as meet poets and appreciators, many who have traveled from the four corners. Please pass the word and invite your friends – we hope to see you at each month’s end, ready to share a word or two and a glass of something fresh!
