Talking Earth on 09/19/11
Two poets with quirky, lively and independent voices on Talking Earth on KBOO Monday, September 19 from 10 to 11 PM: M.F. McAuliffe and Christine Homitsu-White.
M. F. McAuliffe is a writer, editor, and photographer who made her US publishing debut in Damon Knight's Clarion Awards. Her fiction and poetry have appeared in Overland, The Adelaide Review, Australian Short Stories, and FEMSPEC. In 2000 her long poem "Orpheus" was used as a libretto by La Mama Courthouse Theatre, in Melbourne. In 2002 she co-founded the award-winning, Portland-based magazine, Gobshite Quarterly. She continues there as contributing editor and publisher of the new line of GobQ e-books. She has edited and contributed to Golems Waiting, a collaboration with local sculptor Daniel Duford. That book will be released at the end of this week, by Publication Studio in downtown Portland.
Christine Homitsu White works as a groundskeeper and is a former Buddhist seminarian who writes that she has written poetry since her stubby fingers could grasp a #2 pencil but only in earnest for the the last 20 years, and that she fell in love with spoken word performance five years ago at the old Red and Black Cafe and would have its baby if she weren't so damn old. She's performed at a number of venues around Portland including the Alberta St. Pub, the Blue Monk and most recently at Three Friends Coffeehouse where she currently co-hosts the Show & Tell Gallery's Caffeinated Mondays open mic.
