I'm going to start "The Julia Cohen Press for Julia Cohen's Books, Manuscript Selections Made by Julia Cohen" so that my manuscripts stop being sad that they're in a drawer and start being sad that they're published and read only by me!
Anyways, I'm going to this awesome event on Saturday. I hope you put your back into it:
Saturday, October 22 · 6:00pm - 8:00pm
at Counterpath Books, Denver
Poet, filmmaker, provocateur Brandon Downing will be in Denver to present his pastiche films & to read from his new chapbook At Me (Octopus Books).
