Please join us in April and experience the poetry of Grant Clauser, followed by an Open Mic! Poets, lift your voices!

Bio of Grant Clauser Grant Clauser is a frustrated gardener and hack fly fisherman from Hatfield Pennsylvania. He is the author of the books Necessary Myths (due in December 2013) and The Trouble with Rivers. Poems have appeared or are forthcoming in The Literary Review, Painted Bride Quarterly, Cortland Review, Seattle Review, Tipton Review, The American Poetry Review and others. He earned an MFA from Bowling Green State University where he was a Richard Devine fellow. In 2010 he was Montgomery County Poet Laureate. By day he writes about high-end home theater and other electronics. He teaches poetry writing at conferences and at Philadelphia’s Musehouse and runs the blog www.unIambic.com. Writing Sample of Grant Clauser Empty Chair of the Emperor There’s no escaping the dust and smog of Beijing, the cars static and tense paused under construction cranes. Bicycles point toward sunset, riders’ knees holding energy like the springs of cheap watches sold in Tiananmen Square. In the Forbidden City a guard leans against a centuries-old lion, pulls cigarette smoke deep into his body. Things become artifacts only after they’ve been used, their fire burned out and ground into dust. The tourist couple in bright coats at the rope stare past the empty chair of the emperor, she thinking about the dull eyes of koi on the carved dais, he looking at the worn stone steps leading to courtyards, the clap of shoes across the bridge, how rain-stained flags gather all the breeze they can and hold it, how voices linger in the Hall of Harmony long after the tongues have stilled.

A Master Lecturer in photography at the University of the Arts and recipient of a 2001 Pew Fellowship, Feldman has displayed his work at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and sold his work to patrons across the world. More than a photo collection, City Abandoned makes a passionate argument for preservation and renovation of some of Philadelphia’s most important but neglected buildings.

In Hemp Bound: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Cannabis Economy, Fine takes a road trip across North America to investigate the misunderstood plant’s pioneering 21st century uses—from powering cars to insulating houses to healing damaged farmland—and posits that its decriminalization would bring in more taxable income than its smokable cousin.
