I'm going to do it in public!

and I want everyone to watch me.

I don't have the face, and certainly not the body to compete.

I am not an egomaniac; in fact, I am rather shy.

It really makes me uncomfortable, but yes, I AM going to expose myself.

I will be reading my personal essays and a poem. Please come listen.

Tuesday, November 1 at 7:00pm at
Dressel's Public House (Central West End)

Poems, Prose and Pints is proud to present:--Poets and Writers:
The Dressel, Howard Schwartz, Linda O'Connell, Julia Fialla Earhart, Byron Lee, Katy Friedman Miller, Gerald Rock, Kim Lazano, Jason Braun
and Music by: Warm Baby

In case you don't recognize these names, let's just say, this old pup is running with the "big dogs". I am so excited and would like to have as many people as possible in attendance at this FREE event. It would be nice if you bought a drink or a bite to eat at Dressel's, but you don't have to. There is no cover charge.

Okay, I must know...Was this Howard Schwartz once (or perhaps still is) a professor at UMSL?

I have a work meeting every first Tuesday. I can nip out early, but do you have any idea when you go "on"?

Linda, if I were on your side of the state I would definitely be there! Take notes and put on your blog how it goes...tell me how one organizes such a thing...would I be brave enough to risk this here???? This side of the state does great things with paintings and sculpture, but nothing I know of with written arts.

Linda, I've heard you read quite a few times, so I know you can do it! I'll have to see if I can make it that night!

Claudia Moser said...

Wish I could, honest! Enjoy!

You're so wonderful at promoting your work. I'd love to come, but once again, distance dictates my inability to attend. Maybe one of these days. Have fun with it!

Diane said...

Super exciting! Wished I lived closer so I could watch. :O)

Tammy said...

Have something scheduled for that night but wish I could make it! You are doing it with some talented people and so are they!

For Sioux: Yes, Howard Schwartz was/is a professor at UMSL. I think he was guest editor of Natural Bridge at one point, too.

Congratulations! I am sure you will do just fine with the 'big dogs!'
