FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Literary Underground To Host Weekend of Live Poetry Events in Albuquerque
The Literary Underground teams up with independent literary publications Zygote in my Coffee and The Meth Lab to produce two literary readings on November 3rd and 4th.
Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Monday, September 10, 2012–The Literary Underground is a grassroots organization committed to fostering community in the independent press. In coordination with Zygote in my Coffee, they will be hosting “Happy Endings” on Saturday, November 3, 2012 from 4-6 pm at The Box Improv & Performance Space on Gold Avenue in downtown Albuquerque. Happy Endings is to mark the end of the Zyfez reading series (Toledo 2011 and Oakland 2012) with a newly forged alliance between The Literary Underground and Zygote in my Coffee in pledge of supporting underground authors and writing. Zygote in my Coffee is a literary publication that has been publishing online for nearly ten years and in print for five. Many popular, independent authors have had their first works published here.
On Sunday, November 4, 2012, The Literary Underground will partner with The Meth Lab to host “Mothpocalypse”. Mothpocalypse is a gathering of multi-lingual vagabonds, writers and poets communing like it’s early Spring in the middle of Autumn. This event will take place from 5-7 pm at the Harwood Arts Center on 7th & Mountain in downtown Albuquerque. Local author Frankie Metro serves as an editor for The Meth Lab, as well as working on various projects including the Project U Radio Network at The Literary Underground. The Meth Lab takes a ‘no holds barred’ approach to their publishing efforts and seeks to highlight the talents of unknown or not well known authors?a goal that is shared with The Literary Underground.
Both events are free and open to the public. Between the two events, over thirty poets and authors will perform their works live. Those scheduled to read are traveling from all over the United States. Local authors will also be featured.
