Release Party for Magazine 26!

Thursday, April 29th we will be celebrating the much
anticipated release of 26 Magazine, Issue C: a journal
of poetry and poetics with readers Linda Norton, Brian
Teare, Kari Edwards and James Meetze.

26 is a Bay Area based magazine edited by Avery E.D.
Burns, Rusty Morrison, Joseph Noble, Elizabeth
Robinson and Brian Strang. There will be wine,
friends and good company, plus, copies of 26 will be
available for purchase at the event.

About the readers:

Linda Norton is a senior editor of the Regional Oral
History Office in the Bancroft Library at the
University of California. She has published her
poems, stories, essays, stories, and collages in a
number of little magazines, and has written lyrics for
music by composer Eve Beglarian. That piece,
"Landscaping for Privacy," has been performed,
translated, recorded on an Emergency Music CD on CRI.

Brian Teare has been recipient of Stegner, National
Endowment for the Arts, and MacDowell Colony
fellowships and has published poems in Volt, Boston
Review, Ploughshares, and the Colorado Review. His
first book, The Room Where I was Born, won the 2003
Brittingham Prize and was published by the University
of Wisconsin Press.

James Meetze is the author of *Serenades,* just
published by Cy Press, and the publisher of Tougher
Disguises Press. Of his work, John Donne says, "Thou
shalt not love by ways so dangerous" and Emily
Dickinson, "The man who would possess must first
present certificate of...his absent character." He
now calls San Francisco home, where he lives with his
beautiful novelist and radio and palace. His book
Instrument & Amplifier is hopefully forthcoming from
somewhere...Or you could just use the one in 26.
