“It was a wild, exhilarating place to read my work. I would’ve expected it to be hard to get a music audience to focus on words but it was all pure energy, the space great and flowing, the overlap of that act to mine and the next created this really unique attention to sound that I was so glad to be a part of.”
Eileen Myles

oh man i loved it so so so much and wish i went to every previous year and also that it happened monthly <3
Darcie Wilder
