Below is a slideshow featuring photos from some of our recent poetry readings. The first series is from a reading by members of the Wednesday writer's workshop of the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network (MARN), organized by Ànjà Notànjà and hosted at Milwaukee's Downtown Books. The middle series is from our Mabon Reading, which is one of the Brevväxling's quarterly in-house poetry nights. The last in the set is from the Middle Coast Poets Reading at the Riverwest Public House, hosted by Robert Vaughan and Paul Scot August.

Molly has contributed a non-traditional haiku, "Rotunda singer," to the chapbook Turn Up the Volume: Poems about the States of Wisconsin, published by Little Bird Press. Proceeds from sales go to the First Amendment Protection Fund which helps the legal defense costs of activist singers in the Wisconsin state capitol. The Rotunda or "Solidarity Singers" have been issued citations and arrested for protecting our first and fourth amendment rights and for standing up to that bully currently in the governor's office.
To order your copy, go to the Fund's site, click on donate and type "chapbook" in the "purpose" box. Payment is through Paypal and you have to enter the cost ($20.00 per copy) and postage ($2.00).
