Odds & Ends, But Mostly Odds
What could be more anachronistic than silent films? One might consider putting poetry in that category, but for fear of the wrath of the poets. We're clearly willing to stake a claim for the relevance of both, as we invite entries to
4th Annual Joe Gouveia Outermost Poetry Contest
while also inviting you to join Brad Moore as he presents some of his favorite titles from his collection of real films. If you're crafty, you could even write poetry
watching one of Brad's films. There's always beer, wine and snacks at Brad's events if that helps prime your literary pump. Brad's movie nights are incredibly affordable and there's real money on offer to the winners of the poetry contest, so you might even find the experience financially rewarding. The movies are shown (almost) every Thursday at 7:30 from October through March.
Details of the poetry contest can be found here.
Take a tip from Tony Scungilli and be nice to one another. We're all we've got.
