Please join us on Sunday, December 21 at 3 p.m. at the DC Arts Center (2438 18th Street in Adams Morgan, just south of Columbia Road on the west side of the street) for a local extravaganza of poetry by JAMIE GAUGHRAN-PEREZ and JOAN WILCOX.
JAMIE GAUGHRAN-PEREZ used to live and work in DC. Then lived in Lansing, MI. Now works in DC and lives in Woodbridge. Maybe this spring he'll live in Baltimore, you never know. Over the past few years his work has appeared in Outlet, Untitled, Lipstick Eleven, Scout, Fence, and Anomaly. Lately though, he's been working too much and helping to raise a new baby so he just hasn't had as much time to write as he'd like. But he's trying.
JOAN WILCOX likes to ride a syllabic brake but succumb to fluid dynamics. In Reston, VA she continues to work on her (K)not sequences. Her current project, springing from a reading via public documents of an institutionalized immigrant woman's private life, opens a space where notions of immigration and incarceration converse. Joan has published various (k)nots in The Tangent, Phoebe and So to Speak; in 2001 she performed Hitch (k)nots at Ruthless Grip, received the Virginia Downs Poetry Award, and earned an MFA from George Mason University.
