Pol Potluck Press

Come to this reading this Saturday, yo:

The year's first installment of the Bad Shadow Affair is going to knock you out.

Bin Ramke, Cynthia Arrieu-King, Michael Friedman & Joshua Allen will read their work.

Promptly at 7:30pm
at Lost Lake Lounge

3602 E. Colfax Ave

Denver, CO 80206

Bin Ramke edits the Denver Quarterly and teaches literature and creative writing in the English Department. His first book won the Yale Younger Poets Award, and he has since published nine other books of poems, most recently Theory of Mind (Omnidawn, 2009).
Cynthia Arrieu-King is an assistant professor of creative writing at Stockton College. Her book People are Tiny in Paintings of China is out with Octopus Books. Her poems and other work appear in Boston Review, Witness, Jacket & Harp and Altar.

Michael Friedman's books include the comic novel Martian Dawn (Turtle Point, 2006) and the collection of prose poems Species (The Figures, 2000). Several poems from Species were included in the anthology Great American Prose Poems: From Poe to the Present (Scribner, 2003), and Martian Dawn was named by The Believer editor Ed Park one of his ten favorite books of fiction of 2006. Since 1986 he has edited the influential literary journal Shiny. He grew up in Manhattan and is a former chair of the board of directors of The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church.

Joshua Allen has been writing online at fireland dot com since 1995, which is sort of sad. His current project is a confusing set of adventure tales called Chokeville. Andy Dick emailed him out of the blue last year.
