So, last Friday was amazing.

George Drew, pictured at right (with his good friend, poet Lynn Wagner, in the front row) charmed us all with new poems as well as pieces from his book American Cool. Frankly, I think "Our Daughter Is Becoming Elvis" might be one of my favorite poems to emerge in this series.

I am grateful for George's presence here during his stay in Colorado, just as I am indebted to those Open Mic readers who showcase snippets of their work for the pleasure of the community. Thanks, everyone. For this reading, we packed the BAC, running out of chairs before the Open Mic was even started.

And, before I get all mushy, let me quickly say that I have been so touched by the donations you've contributed to keep CSWRS afloat. As of now, we've raised enough money to fund October, November, and most of December's events.

Speaking of future months, be sure to catch Kathryn Eastburn at our next reading on October 14th. Kathryn's nonfiction works and creative contributions to both KRCC and The Independent make her one of the most genuine local writers in this community.

We'll be in the BAC gallery again, at 7:30pm, October 14th. I truly look forward to seeing you there, as I always look forward to meeting new writers and readers in the area.

Have a great September,

Abby E. Murray
CSWRS Coordinator


  1. Wish I could have been there! Have you thought of establishing a paypal account so people (like me) can donate to the reading series online? Let me know :-)

  2. Oooh... good idea, Monet. I do have a paypal account, but it's for my book. I bet I could just add a different section. Lemme talk to the fantastic girl-wonder who does my techy stuff.
