Before we tell you all about the next poetry extravaganza from Stain, we have an exciting announcement for you. As of 2011, Stain of Poetry will be directed by three brilliant new curators: the poets Steven Karl, Erika Moya, and Christie Ann Reynolds. The Stain of Poetry founder Amy King & her co-director Ana Božičević — ie, we — will bow out to focus on our new books and on editing the soon-to-launch e-journal ESQUE.
Our incoming trio of curators will introduce themselves to you at POPSICKLE: A Festival of Literary Arts on July 24 & 25, where they will host the Stain portion of the readings, as well as at regularly scheduled Stain readings throughout the summer and fall. Don’t worry, we (Amy and Ana) will be around till the close of year, so there will be plenty of opportunity to raise glasses of sake lemonade together. We are so excited to welcome Steven, Erika & Christie Ann to Stain of Poetry!
The next Stain reading will be part of POPSICKLE: A Festival of Literary Arts:
