ASHEVILLE WORDFEST ON WEBCAM



(Li-Young Lee)


ASHEVILLE WORDFEST IS COMING, APRIL 30-MAY 3. Go to their website for all the information you could possibly want: schedule, poets, history, and a photo archive of last year's festival. WordFest live webcasts the evening (7-9 pm) readings from this site so everyone with access to wifi, dial-up, ethernet and telepathic powers can "attend" this intercultural, international, inter-aesthetical (!) poetry event. With a line-up including Quincy Troupe, Liz Bradfield, Li-Young Lee, Valzhyna Mort, Frank X Walker, you don't have to wonder what to do next Thursday, Friday, Saturday evenings.

Below is your schedule of readings. Here also is the Asheville WordFest promo video produced by Kurt Mann at American Green. http://vimeo.com/4296487
