I was amused by this poetry-related news:
For those interested, the "snoetry" poetry reading in Elyria OH is trying to break the record for longest poetry reading (they're aiming for 150 hours), continuing on from last Wednesday night through until next Tuesday, 24 hours a day.
The schedule of events is here:
http://crisisblog.crisischronicles.com/2011/01/29/schedule-of-poets-during-snoetry-2-in-elyria.aspx and includes several speculative poets on Sunday 2/6. From 3-3:30pm, the "Deep Cleveland Trio" features dan smith, whose name you may have seen in various SF pubs (such Scifaikuest, where he appears pretty regularly). And then a couple of hours later, from 7 - 8 pm Mary and I will be the featured poets.
