Our New Collaboration and Our New Venue
We'd like to re-introduce The So and So Reading Series, a quarterly reading and design endeavor soon to be launched in downtown Raleigh (having been transplanted from its Boston origins). So and So seeks to fill Raleigh's poetry void by bringing in both national and regional poets.
The So and So series will coordinate with the new print journal, The Raleigh Quarterly (coinciding quarterly readings with RQ's issue launches). Raleigh Quarterly will print work from the visiting poets alongside visual pieces. Additional poems will be published online.
Additionally, So and So will collaborate with local artists and printers to create limited run broadsides of each poet's work.
Chris Salerno and Chris Tonelli will run the series and edit the poetry element of Raleigh Quarterly. Readings will start in February 2009. We'll make announcements as readings near and rosters are filled.
*Readings will be held on Saturdays, 8pm, at The Morning Times Café on Hargett Street in Raleigh.
