The Hermit Poet

Upcoming Readings

Filed under: Announcements,General — Neil Aitken @ 5:24 pm

I have two upcoming readings — both of which I am very excited about. Coming first is the reading with Louise Mathias, who I had the pleasure of hearing feature not long ago at Tebot Bach. There’s an unearthly edge to her work, a beauty that emerges at the threshold between terror and awe. Mystery is a word that seems to haunt these poems. Check out her book, Lark Apprentice.

The Beyond the Valley of Contemporary Poets Anthology reading promises to be dazzling night of poetry. While I don’t have the list in front of me, I can assure you that it’s well worth the trip out to Studio City.
