Poetic Interventions 

Wednesday, May 14 2014

Every month, Writing Without Walls picks a topic and accepts submissions of all forms of writing, choosing the six best pieces and publishing them in a chapbook available for only $5 at the show. This month, which is the 21st installment, features a great lineup of authors writing on the theme "Intervention," including vice president and events coordinator of The Sacramento Poetry Center, Tim Kahl (an incredibly good poet who performs as well as he writes). Joining Kahl are Miquila Alejandre, Chris Carosi, SB Stokes, Gaia Patience Venis, and Sandra Wassilie. "What is fun is how each writer takes the theme as an entry point into a unique creative interpretation," says curator Jeff Von Ward. "The work ultimately coheres as a collection not in spite of but because of each author's originality." Von Ward is looking for a co-producer and invites inquiries; the series is also accepting submissions for their food-themed issue through June 9th.
