Melinda Mueller at WordsWest

Melinda Mueller C&P Coffeehouse WordsWest

A wonderfully attentive crowd for WordsWest and a particularly nice evening to find that the C & P Coffeehouse has been saved from development by neighbors pitching in to buy it.

Dianne Aprile and Melinda Mueller braided their readings on the theme of “Who Tells Her Story?”. I’ll be looking forward to Dianne’s memoir she was reading from being published.

We managed to get two short snippets of Melinda reading from Mary’s Dust. The first is Mary Easty and the second is Anna Maria dal Violin, which you can read in Poetry Northwest (as well as hear some of Lori Goldston’s music).

And we’ll also add in our film on the book by Christian Anderson, in the event you have not seen it.

A sweet night at Margin Shift

Goldston and Mueller Margin Shift Seattle

Lori Goldston and Melinda Mueller tried a new format for reading at this month’s Margin Shift, with Lori playing and Melinda reading over, through and around Lori’s compositions. It was an invigorating interpretation of their work together in Mary’s Dust.

Thanks to Common Area Maintenance for hosting. It makes me so happy that spaces like this still exist in Belltown.

Maya Jewell Zeller & Ellen Welcker at Open Books!

Thanks to everyone that came out for our first reading of Alchemy for Cells & Other Beasts in Seattle. And hurrah for Ellen Welcker joining in…her newest book was slightly delayed, you will want to find it at Open Books early next year.

One of the bonuses of last night was that we got to finally meet Rebecca Starkey, our first Emerging Visions Filmmaker Award winner. See her film HERE.

Aaron Shurin at Open Books

By | Readings

It’s not every day that one gets to introduce their first poetry crush. The truth is I started to tear up in my rambling introduction to Aaron Shurin!

It has been such a great honor to publish his work.

Thanks to Alex Vigue, who just had his first chapbook, The Myth of Man, published by our friends at Floating Bridge Press for opening the evening. And, of course, Open Books for being a fantastic host.

Recommended reading from Aaron Shurin (except that Clare is well, my own issue).

Karinna Gomez at Davidson Galleries

By | Readings

karinna-gomez-reception-davidson-galleries Ok, ok, we took terrible pictures of this event! Why do we not have any pictures of Karinna talking about her art? Why did we not interview her on video about it? Oh, the things to learn as a new publisher.

We want to thank everyone that came down to look at the prints at Karinna Gomez’s Artist Reception at Davidson Galleries. We will note that if you enjoy the art in The After, and you are in Seattle, it is well worth your time to go look at Davidson Galleries selection of Karinna’s work. Our printer did a wonderful job with very difficult prints, but the originals have a glow and detail that the book lacks due to the nature of mezzotints.
