The So and So Series booked for 2009!

We'd like to re-introduce The So and So Reading Series, a quarterly reading and design endeavor soon to be launched in downtown Raleigh (having been transplanted from its Boston origins). So and So seeks to fill Raleigh's poetry void by bringing in both national and regional poets. See the blog at http://thesoandsoseries.blogspot.com/.

Christopher Salerno and Chris Tonelli will run the series and edit the poetry element of Raleigh Quarterly.

The So and So series will coordinate with the new print journal, The Raleigh Quarterly (coinciding quarterly readings with RQ's issue launches). Raleigh Quarterly will print work from the visiting poets alongside visual pieces. Additional poems will be published online at http://www.raleighquarterly.com/. Additionally, So and So will collaborate with local artists and printers to create limited run broadsides of each poet's work.
*Readings will be held on Saturdays, 8pm, at The Morning Times Café on Hargett Street in Raleigh.
