Saturday, December 13, 8:00 p.m.
Jefferson Hansen and Tom Orange
@ Ruthless Grip
We hope you can join us on Saturday, December 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Washington Printmakers Gallery (1732 Connecticut Ave., second floor, several blocks north of the Dupont Circle Q Street Metro Exit) for the next reading in the Ruthless Grip Poety Series. This month's event features two great players of poetry as wild sound, TOM ORANGE and JEFFERSON HANSEN.

Along with many other publications, TOM ORANGE has poems forthcoming in The Gig, Anomaly, and The Tagent, as well as an insert of his poems appearing in Booglit. An essay on Tom Raworth's Ace came out recently in The Gig. He edits the website and is co-curator of the reading series IN YOUR EAR at the DC Arts Center. His booklength study of Clark Coolidge's early poetry, a chapter of which appeared in New American Writing, is either the dissertation he's trying to finish or a lifelong project.

JEFFERSON HANSEN is the author of ten chapbooks of prose and poetry, the latest of which is entitled "Instant Misha" (Standing Stones Press.) Hispoetry has also appeared in the journals Denver Quarterly, Sulfur, and Pom Pom, among others, and in the anthology Writing From the New Coast. He is a graduate of the Poetics Program at SUNY-Buffalo and currently lives in Minneapolis.

To cover gallery costs, Ruthless Grip Poetry readings have a $3 cover, which can be waived for any poet out there who's too broke to pony up.

We hope to see you there and for all festivities afterwards!
