A great opportunity to pick up a copy of the most recent PLU issue, to order a CD, get George’s book if you have not, check out some books by Jason and Donald, and, of course, have a drink with us all as we say "Fall? drab—NO! Tis the season of poetry and music!" Contact: Jennifer K. Dick.


George Vance: long-time resident of  Paris, with passages in Brussels, Nouméa, Reims, and presently in Guadeloupe;  hybrid poet, mixed media; has read at various Paris venues (UAD, Poets Live, Ivy, Quadriphonics, Spoken Word); his work has appeared in UAD, Bastille, Pharos. Poetry volumes  A SHORT CIRCUIT and Xmas collage published with corrupt press. Currently working on text-transformation project based on Infinite Jest. Scribbles daily.

Jason Stoneking: is an American poet, essayist, and performance artist based in Paris, France. He has authored two volumes of poetry and four collections of essays, and has performed his art and writing for more than twenty-five years at venues ranging from the main stage at Lollapalooza to the Pont Neuf in Paris and the rooftops of Cairo. His writing has been featured in numerous online and print publications, including the current issues of Paris Lit Up and Post Road. He has also written screenplays, rock music, and chess journalism. He is currently working on a series of bespoke, handwritten books by commission. He is inspired by the idea that we are all hurtling through an infinite black void for no reason. More about Jason and his work can be found on his website at www.jasonstoneking.com

Donald Tournier: was born in Brussels and raised in Hong Kong. He writes in English and French, also publishing under the name Donald Ciechanowski. He sells his French poetry on the Paris metro under the name Mark Tapley. He has published a collection of French poems, Ouroboros. He is a contributor and editor of the francophone trimestrial review NAMO.

Bremner Duthie:  was born in New York and grew up in the USA, Scotland and Canada. Singing is all he ever wanted to do. Every afternoon in New York, his family could hear him coming down the street as he sang his way home from school. He started singing with Punk Rock bands, moved on to studying and performing Opera, and trained in contemporary vocal music at the 'Centre for New Opera' in Banff. He has sung operatic roles by Mozart and avant-garde masterpieces like Maxwell Davies' 'Eight Songs for a Mad King'.  Bremner has performed across North America and Europe in theatre and in concert, working with chamber ensembles, orchestras and jazz quartets. He currently lives between New Orleans, Montreal and Paris and is singing songs from the birth of jazz, the innovative, ground- breaking repertoire of the 1920's & 30's.  Over the past decade, Bremner has been exploring New Cabaret, creating performance pieces that are an emotional collage of ideas and songs. These pieces have been performed across North America and Europe to critical praise:   "A stunning theatrical achievement"—Edmonton Journal. "Duthie brings passion, power and conviction to the songs"—The Stage. "Captivating performances of Kurt Weill's songs... beautifully delivered with power and emotion"—Edfringe Review. "Duthie is a baritone with operatic scope; instead of mere interludes, the songs become weapons”—See Magazine, Canada. “And my god, does he ever sing. Bremner's performance is jaw-dropping-my jaw literally dropped"—View Magazine. His first recording, Bremner Sings Kurt Weill, was devoted to his own personal obsession, the extraordinary songs of Kurt Weill. Bremner recorded sparse, heartfelt versions of Weill's repertoire, which stretches from the streets of 1920's Berlin to the dazzling lights of Broadway.  For his second CD, The Sky Was Blue, he asked the question "What is a jazz standard?". As an answer, Bremner created swinging arrangements of songs from his youth, from the Velvet Underground, Talking Heads, Joni Mitchell and others, placing them side by side with more traditional jazz standards. His latest recording, '33(a kabarett), is a 'concept album', an exploration of musical, emotional, sexual and political inspirations behind the idea of Cabaret, with new arrangements of songs by Weill, Hollaender, Noel Coward and Sondheim.

Bremner has performed in venues that vary from 3000 seat arenas in Tokyo, to improvised atelier-lofts in Paris and Edinburgh, to table-top stages in hard-drinking bars in the small Canadian towns along Lake Superior. He says that each had its own particular delights.

(En) Kevin Craft lives in Seattle and directs the Written Arts Program at Everett Community College. His first book, Solar Prominence (2005), was selected by Vern Rutsala for the Gorsline Prize from Cloudbank Books. A new collection, Vagrants & Accidentals, has just been published in the Pacific Northwest Poets Series of the University of Washington Press. His poems, reviews, and essays have appeared widely in such places as Poetry, The Kenyon Review, New England Review, and The Stranger. He has received fellowships and awards from the Bread Loaf Writers Conference, MacDowell Colony, the Bogliasco Foundation (Italy), the Camargo Foundation (France), 4Culture, The Jack Straw Cultural Center, and Artist Trust. Craft served as editor of Poetry Northwest from 2009 - 2016. He is now executive editor of Poetry NW Editions, and a director of the UW Writers in Rome program which he has led for nearly 20 years. He believes that poems, like good travelers, live in the go-between. 

(Fr) Sabine Macher, née en Allemagne de l’ouest, arrive en France en 1976 pendant son parcours d’études germaniques. Au début des années 80 elle se tourne vers la danse et y entame un double parcours d’interprète et d’auteur-chorégraphe, principalement dans le champs de la danse contemporaine, mais aussi dans celui du théâtre et de la performance. A cela s’ajoute une pratique d’écriture qui prend la forme du livre à partir de 1992, associant parfois la photographie, la traduction, mais aussi des pièces sonores et créations radiophoniques, restituant une place à l’oralité propre à la poésie et au documentaire. Cet ensemble de désirs et d’activités produit des formes tantôt collectives, tantôt solitaires, en tension entre l’intime et le social, le théâtre et l’espace urbain, articulées par la rencontre et le hasard. Derniers livres parus : Deux coussins pour Norbert (Le bleu du ciel, 2009) et Résidence absolue (Isabelle Sauvage, 2011). Dernière traduction : Je rêve que je vis ? Ceija Stojka, Editions Isabelle Sauvage, 2016 , de : Träume ich, dass ich lebe ? Picus Verlag, Wien 2005.

(En) Charles Borkhuis is a poet and playwright living in NYC. His nine books of poetry include: Finely Tuned Static with paintings by John McCluskey (Lunar Chandelier, 2017). Dead Ringer (BlazeVox, 2017), Disappearing Acts (Chax 2014), Afterimage (Chax, 2006 ). His plays have been produced in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hartford, and Paris. His two radio plays were aired over NPR and can be heard on www.pennsound.
