September Readings - your invitation

I'm one lucky ducky. The Ottawa literary community has been so incredibly supportive of my work.
I have two forthcoming readings with writers who I respect & like a helluva lot.

1. Ottawa Launch: Mouthquake by Daniel Allen Cox, September 20, 6:30pm, Venus Envy

Please spread the word. It's going to be a great night

Sunday, September 20, 2015, 6:30pm: Mouthquake by Daniel Allen Cox with special guests Amanda Earl, Marcus McCann, Billeh Nickerson. Venus Envy, 226 Bank Street. Free.
 Quick & dirty fiction & poetry readings by the fabulous four.

Written with a poetic bravado and in a structure that mimics a stutter, the elegiac Mouthquake is speech therapy for the bent: the signal is perverted and the sounds are thrilling.

For bios etc please visit

I'll be reading from two new works: Big Cock Attitude - a series of short smutty genre busters & Queen Christina, poems about well known & obscure creative folk & fictional characters who flouted genre & sex conventions.

Sept 20 is also Charles' birthday, so we'll be celebrating afterward with libations & conversation. You're invited to that too, of course, my darlings.

2. Tuesday, Tree Reading Series presents Amanda Earl & Roland Prevost, Black Squirrel Books, 1073 Bank Street
Workshop with Claudia Coutu Radmore at 6:45pm on Little Literary Haibun;
Open mic at 8pm: bring your poems. especially the dirty ones. 
Featured readers sometime after that. This will not be a PG reading. Nothing too fucked up, but fucked up enough...

I'll be reading from two new works that were written under the influence of Jeff Buckley, Djuna Barnes, Helene Cixous, early morning walks & gin.

For both events i'll have copies of Kiki & A Book of Saints on hand for your purchase.

Thanks to Venus Envy & to Black Squirrel Books. Thanks to the Tree Reading Series & to my darling fellow readers. Both of these events are going to be a heck of a good time.
