2016 Guest Curators

In 2012 we began an exciting BAPM tradition:
guest curators for the June & July events.

And this summer we have two more superb poets on board:

Julian Talamantez Brolaski  &  Chloe Veylit

julian & chloe

Julian will curate the June 11 reading, & Chloe will curate the July 23 reading.  I’m so looking forward to hearing the new voices they’ll bring to the series this summer!

I’m also delighted to announce that BAPM has found a new home this summer at the wonderful Alley Cat Books gallery space in the heart of the Mission.
( Big thanks to Simon Crafts and all the good folks there. )

All of this year’s BAPM events will be held there, including September’s 100 Thousand Poets For Change event, which I’ll curate as usual.

Please join Julian, Chloe, & me for this year’s exciting run.
