How can I receive access to the zoom event?
You can obtain access by clicking on the link below and registering for a ticket, its free! The sale ends April 27, 2021!
If you don’t already know about it, Lit Crawl is a citywide event during which venues such as art galleries, bars, bookstores, bowling alleys, cafes, community spaces, restaurants, stores, and even police stations host simultaneous live readings around the city in just over three hours. In some cases, artists can show up to read their fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and more at these venues to live audiences from their areas. (Hint: Look for the ‘Open Mic’ listings!) So whether you’re an artist, a connoisseur of art, or both you can get something out of it. Each and every event is free, though they will be accepting donations and every little bit helps!
For more information, please follow the above link. We hope to see you there!
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”
Following in the spirit of Forum‘s recent publication party—which, if you missed, was a great success and a lot of fun—we are hosting a second open mic and reading this semester, this time at the ever-excellent Cafe La Boheme. Located next door to the 24th Street BART station, Cafe La Boheme is not only easy to get to but also serves as a dependable locale for finding good food, drink and conversation—and, in the case of this upcoming Sunday, a chance to hear the latest literary works of the CCSF community as well. So whether you have some new or old work you would like to read, you’d like to hear some great stories and poetry, or you’re simply looking for something to do Sunday night, come on out and enjoy the festivities!
When: Sunday, April 14, 2013 @ 5:30 PM
Where: Cafe La Boheme (3318 24th Street)
Friday was the release party for Forum’s Fall 2012 issue, and the party was a great success! Thank you everyone who came out. And a special thanks to the English Literature Club for hosting us, to Katerina Argyyles for the excellent hors d’oeuvres, to all the great readers—Jordy Lynch, Aaron Arnold, Brittanic X.O. Zane, John Silverman, Vincent Cheng, Jerome Steegman, Maya Archer-Doyle and Natalie Enright—for their courage and generosity, and likewise to all those who participated in the open mic, much thanks to all. In the coming weeks we will be publishing video of readings from the event but in the meantime here are a few photos of all the gala and fun.
L’s Caffe have been kind enough to sponsor a reading/fundraiser for Forum.
Reading will be crime novelist and teacher Seth Harwood and poets Nic Alea and Aimee Suzara and possibly others (watch for updates). There will also be the usual open mic, maybe a raffle and, excitingly, the latest issue of Forum will be out so you’ll have your first chance to see (and/or purchase) the latest batch of poetry, prose and art from the CCSF community.
Benjamin Bac Sierra author of the novel Barrio Bushido and poet Athena Kashyap whose work has appeared in Noe Valley Voice, Spork, The Fourth River and many others will be reading this coming Monday, May 7 in Visual Arts 114. There will also be standard reading fare — an open mic as well as food and drink and a raffle. Hope to see you there.
