Saturday, February 12, 8:00PM - 10:00PM
Midnight in December: Maureen Andary, Katy Bohinc, Theodora Danylevich, Brandon Fitzgerald, Jackie Kari, Adam Marston, Mel Nichols
@ Baked & Wired

Based on The 3:15 Experiment by Bernadette Mayer, Lee Ann Brown, Jen Hofer, and others, Midnight in December involved several poets all writing at midnight every day for the month of December 2010: Maureen Andary, Katy Bohinc, Lee Ann Brown, Theodora Danylevich, Brandon Fitzpatrick, Sheena Grewal, Jackie Kari, Adam Marston, and Mel Nichols. On February 11th a number of these poets will read from their new work at Baked & Wired in Georgetown, 8:00PM.

Maureen Andary writes short, sweet songs on the ukulele. Topics include: prescription drugs, imperfect love, and codependency. She holds a Bachelors of English and Creative Writing from New York University and teaches music full-time in Washington, DC. Maureen is half of pop/folk duo The Sweater Set. The Midnight in December project is a welcome return to her poetry writing roots.

Katy Bohinc: I am no one, I am free.

Theodora (Dora) Danylevich is a graduate student in English at George Washington University. She holds an MA in Communication, Culture and Technology from Georgetown University and a BA in Comparative Literature from Columbia University. She is currently preparing for comps in American Lit and therefore has not much to say for herself, but to read. Eternally grateful to Mel and DCPoetry for such a vibrant community. Her poetry has long been in working with constraints so this midnight experiment has been a good one for shaking things up a bit. Poems have appeared in Vanitas, Boog, Phoebe and DCPoetry. Her academic work has been published in Tits: A 24-Hour Journal of Poetry & Poetics and Delirious Hem.

Coined the Dali of poetry in the 6th grade, Brandon Michael Fitzgerald is working on his first manuscript which he hopes to publish posthumously. He has studied at Kenyon, University College of Dublin and McGill, and currently works as a librarian at the Library of Congress. Contrary to popular belief, he does not care for eggplant. Please refrain from discussing eggplant with him after the reading.

Jackie Kari is a poet and translator. She just finished an MA at Miami University, where she and 5 other female poets collaborated on Midsummer Day, a day-long solstitial response to Bernadette Mayer's Midwinter Day. She is currently pursuing an MFA in poetry at George Mason University.

Adam Marston is a student at George Mason University. He has an enormous pink squid kite as a constant source of inspiration. In his imagination-ego his future book could be about the strategies of stacking smallish oblong objects toward the ceiling and then finding another consciousness. In most together-organs it would probably be easy to share the watercloset.
