Featured Poets

Linda Lerner Linda Lerner’s collection, Yes, the Ducks Were Real, was published by NYQ Books (Feb. 2015) as was her previous full-length collection, Takes Guts and Years Sometimes. She’s been nominated three times for a Pushcart Prize. In 1995 she and Andrew Gettler began Poets on the Line, (http://www.echony.com/~poets) for which she received two grants. In Spring, 2015 she read six poems on WBAI for Arts Express; A Dance Around the Cauldron, a prose work with drawings by Donna  Kerness, consists of nine characters during the Salem witch trials and brought into our own times, published by Lummox Press, September, 2017. Her next poetry collection “Taking the F Train” will be published by NYQ books in late 2018 or early 2019.

John J. Trause, the Director of Oradell Public Library, is the author of Why Sing? (Sensitive Skin Press, 2017); Picture This: For Your Eyes and Ears (Dos Madres Press, 2016; Exercises in High Treason (great weather for MEDIA, 2016); Eye Candy for Andy (13 Most Beautiful… Poems for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests, Finishing Line Press, 2013); Inside Out, Upside Down, and Round and Round (Nirala Publications, 2012); Seriously Serial (Poets Wear Prada, 2007; rev. ed. 2014); and Latter-Day Litany (Éditions élastiques, 1996), the latter staged Off Broadway.  His translations, poetry, and visual work appear internationally in many journals and anthologies, including The Antioch Review, the artists’ periodical Crossings, the Dada journal Maintenant, the journal Offerta Speciale, the Great Weather for Media anthologies It’s Animal but Merciful (2012) and I Let Go of the Stars in My Hand (2014), and Rabbit Ears : TV Poems (NYQ Books, 2015).  Marymark Press has published his visual poetry and art as broadsides and sheets. He has shared the stage with Steven Van Zandt, Anne Waldman, Karen Finley, Andrei Codrescu, and Jerome Rothenberg; the page with Billy Collins, Lita Hornick, William Carlos Williams, Woody Allen, Ted Kooser, Victor Buono, and Pope John Paul II; and the cage with the Cumaean Sibyl, Ezra Pound, Hannibal Lector, Andrei Chikatilo, and George “The Animal” Steele. He is a founder of the William Carlos Williams Poetry Cooperative in Rutherford, N. J., and the former host and curator of its monthly reading series.  For the sake of art Mr. Trause hung naked for one whole month in the summer of 2007 on the Art Wall of the Bowery Poetry Club.  He is fond of cunning acrostics and color-coded chiasmus, and at various times in his life he has been mistaken for being a priest, a policeman, a pimp, and a pornographer.

Deborah Clapp is a poet, performance artist, producer and director.  She has produced dance, original theatre pieces, film, and one-woman shows.  She has also performed stand-up and musical improvisation.  Her work has provided a context for the development of a repertoire of original characters telling their stories through poetry and monologues. Deborah is a recipient of a La MaMa Award for playwriting, and has performed a one-woman show entitled “Recipe for An Expanding Universe” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, “Outrageous Introverts” aired on Manhattan Cable and “Shine A Light” at Bowery Poetry Club. In New York City, she has appeared at Bowery Poetry, The Duplex, St. Mark’s Church, The Club/La Mama, The Joyce/SoHo, Judson Church and Westside Y among other venues. Deborah continues her exploration and celebration of creativity and all its amazing ways of expression.

June 13 2012 024 CL Pick hitTHE COAL YARD  Corner of 1st Avenue & 6st. East Village NYC .The official Rubber Eden Bar is one that my Kid’s GF picked out for me on the lower east side one Fall. Must to check out the Coal Yard. No sound system (only a old juke box)  nice and dark, circular bar stocked with regulars, ill-regulars, beats, punks, hippies, left-overs, reheated souls and characters galore and aglow. Friendly bartenders, cheap beer (yea they have 3 buck High Life) and a killer court yard out back (as displayed here) to have a butt and talk in. Here’s a link for more info
