Monday Oct 30th! JELAL HUYLER from Oakland, CA! Plus! Costume Persona Poem Challenge! Plus! Sorana Gatej Paints!

POETRY FEAUTRE: Y. JELAL HUYLER is an Oakland, CA. born, Massachusetts residing, poet and emcee who does not believe in time.  He spends most of this not-believed-in concept scribbling into notebooks. His voice and work have been featured in several documentaries, including Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequality, which explores race and restorative justice in the United States. Jelal has recently published his first book of poetry Fractals with The Gorilla Press (thegorillapress.com). Previous and forthcoming publications include Eleven Eleven, 3Elements Review, 580 Split, Drunk in a Midnight Choir, as well as numerous other “here and there”s.

BONUS RUCKUS: COSTUME PERSONA POEM CHALLENGE: Cash prize for the Gerunder who wishes to get meta, by dawning a costume, then performing a poem from the point of view of that character. Poems don’t necessarily have to be of your creation, we’ll allow covers. Dress up like a squirrel and rock an ode to nuts! Dress up like a nut and lyrically rant about squirrels! It’s all good!

SORANA GATEJ is rocking the oils on canvas this week! Snacks by Emilee! Open mic and all the rest of the best!
