@ Ruthless Grip
The Fall 2005 DCPoetry season continues this Saturday, October 8, 7:30 pm at Washington Printmakers Gallery (1732 Connecticut Ave, second floor, between R and S Streets, several blocks north of the Dupont Circle Q Street Metro exit). This month the Ruthless Grip Poetry Series features a multigenre experience: fiction and poetry from Jamie Gaughran-Perez and Ted Pelton

JAMIE GAUGHRAN-PEREZ is responsible for the blog-like multi-authoring environment known as Rock Heals (, which "bring you an enjoyable mix of all kinds of things -- from poetry to reporting; reviews and recipes; fiction and essay, artwork, comics, etc." He currently lives in the Lauraville, Baltimore -- which John Waters recently declared the sexiest neighborhood in the city -- and works down in Washington, DC. He's married to an awesome lady and has an awesome daughter with frightening mental powers. He's published poems in
little mags here and there and had been trying to get his own thing together (mag & press) for nearly a decade without making it happen.

TED PELTON is the author of a story collection, Endorsed by Jack Chapeau, now in an expanded second edition, and Bhang, a novella. His novel, Malcolm and Jack (and Other Famous American Criminals), will be published by Spuyten Duyvil Books in 2006. He is the ExecutiveDirector of Starcherone Books, a fiction press he founded in 2000. Recipient of an NEA Fellowship for
Fiction in 1994, he is currently an Associate Professor at Medaille College of Buffalo, NY.

Ruthless Grip readings have a $3 cover on a sliding scale for anyone who really needs to slide by: proceeds go to the space and the readers.

Hope to see you there!
