Second Thursday Open Mic featuring Loueva Smith: Oct 13

Join us every Second Thursday for our monthly Open Mic--
Hosted by Cindy Huyser

Loueva Smith is the winner of the 2015 Robert Phillips Chapbook Prize, awarded by Texas Review Press. Her poems have been published in such journals as DoubleTake and the Louisiana Review, and anthologized in Goodbye, Mexico, Untamable City, The Weight Of Addition, and TimeSlice.

Her poetry is spoken as narration in Shamed, a dance film by Frame Dance Production, choreographed by Lydia Hance. Her poetry has been painted into nude watercolors by Cookie Wells for the artist’s 2015 show, Body Language, at Archway Gallery in Houston, Texas. Loueva Smith presented a reading of her poems at the opening, and Lydia Hance interpreted the poems through dance, unaccompanied by music. Her poetry was also presented in a dance performance by jhon stronks called Purging Honey at Rice University. Her play Tenderina was staged at Frenetic Theater in Houston, Texas. She is the author of The Book Of Wool And Fur, a hand-made fur-covered collection of love poems.

A Round Robin style Open Mic follows the feature. Bring poems to share!
