All hyperbole and BS about the reading and the local poetry scene aside, Rob has been putting on poetry open mics in the area for a long, long time and this one is no different; poetry, spoken word, period.
In other news, Engelhardt is embarking on a new project, a new literary e-zine that looks to combine all of the glamour of drunkenness, the beauty of smoking, black and white photography, steampunk, and everything that was once great on his new website. According to the announcement below, the deadline is October 1st with the first “issue” being launched later in the month.
Poet R.M. Engelhardt has launched THE LITERARY ROGUE. A “new online, fancy shmancy electronic type quarterly e-zine out of his hometown Albany,NY which will feature the poetry, art, short stories, reviews and photography of new as well as old established word & visual artists in an old-school style which will celebrate both the past and present of such great genres as noir, pulp fiction, steam-punk, the classic literary drunkard, sly romance and mostly done with a good amount of decadence & little debauchery added in as well on the side. The first issue will be online in late October, 2012 and poets, writers, artists & photographers are invited to submit their work at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For guideline details & submission formats please go to www.theliteraryrogue.com . The submission deadline is October 1st.
