One of the reasons Nick, Andy, and I discontinued the regular poetry readings at the Lit Café, was because we were anchored to the second Thursday every month. Sure the consistency made sure everybody knew when and where, but sometimes some of the best… more »

Gone but not forgotten. You could say that about the readings at the Literary Café, as cliché as it is. But remember, there were readings in the 90’s way before Nick and I got it into our soft craniums to do it ourselves. And we promised that there wi… more »

Bye Bye

It’s hard to imagine that after four years of throwing poets together to get their versigroove on every month, every second Thursday, that Nick and I are throwing in the towel (albeit not a very clean towel). Yes, Friends, the institution of the Poetry… more »

I have just returned from an adventure. In order to find the finest poets for the Literary Café Poetry series, sometimes I must venture into the deepest, darkest recesses of our continent. Only the most exotic and talented poets can stand up to Clevela… more »

Cleveland summers are more confusing than San Francisco's, but without the hills, Alcatraz (unless you include Mansfield), or sourdough bread in earshot of seal honking. Of course, we got Jimmy Dimora during a pasta feast. But the weather in July is a… more »
