Pittsburgh has plenty of literary events happening around town n'at. Every week there are at least three events and there are a number of regular monthly reading series. A great resource for all things literary in the 'burgh is the Pittsburgh Poetry Calendar.
I have some friends reading in events this week. My Chatham buddies Thom Dawkins and Petro-Micchelli are reading at the Hungry Sphinx reading tonight at 8pm. Oakland. Check it out.
My good friend Crystal Hoffman is reading tomorrow night at Modern Formations in Garfield for the New Yinzer Presents series. The fun starts at 8pm there as well.
My next reading coming up is one I'm really looking forward to! I'll be reading with so many poets, including Thom and good friend Michelle Stoner. Chesterfest is a fundraiser to help send some Carlow students to the AWP conference in April. This reading will be hosted by Kayla Sargeson and what I can only assume is her home on March 27th in Oakland at 127 Chesterfield Street. Doors open at 6:30pm (I think), readings start at 8pm. There are tons of readers, art on display and musicians will begin playing around 9pm. Dancing starts at midnight! I'm pumped.
