27 – Poetry & Vulnerability w. Cristina Filomena

Poet, actress, singer, person, Cristina Filomena is here to talk about her recently published book of poems: Lost. A Collection of Poetry and Prose.

We cover the whole journey of how one goes from having their break-up poems in their journal, to having a book of your work published and sold to people for money. We discuss the vulnerability inherent in creativity, poetry, and in online criticism. Cristina also gifts us with a reading of one of her poems!

So make sure to get the book however you can, check out Cristina’s Instagram, and keep an eye out for her music.

PS: we forgot to mention that Cristina has a music gig coming up at Blackbird Cafe April 26th 6:30pm as part of her duo: One Fell Swoop.

11 – Poetry w. Liam Coady

Poet Liam Coady stops by to talk about art, poetry, and generously offers us an exclusive sneak-peek of his upcoming book: ‘This Love is Mad Reciprocal’, featuring 2 performed poems by the man himself.

We explore the relationship between spoken & written word; we bear witness to the artifacts of creative impulses; we discuss how a book of poems can feel like a mixtape or playlist; and we strive to record despite the efforts of the Illuminati & the Ghosts of Self-Promotion!

Liam’s book is available February 22, 2018 via Glass Buffalo (https://www.glassbuffalo.com/), or you can check out his release party that night at The Sewing Machine Factory (https://www.facebook.com/events/1597088990385775/). You can reach Mr. Coady via Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/liamcoadypoetry/), Twitter (https://twitter.com/TheLocoCoyote), or Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/liam_pcoady/).
