Artichoke Haircut’s literature carnival won’t make sense

April 19, 2013

Saturday, April 20, Artichoke Haircut, which teamed up with Publishing Genius, Shattered Wig, Ink Press,  and 5ive:Ten will host the “This Won’t Make Sense Literature Carnival,” which the mag defines as “an absolutely ridiculous reading” at the Metro Gallery. Artichoke Haircut, a literary arts magazine, which just published its fifth issue, was founded, the editors say  was founded when they “were in a bar one night dreaming of living on an oil rig, of having a party-boat, of having pet sharks, of starting a magazine. Only one of those dreams came true.”

Tomorrow’s reading will feature Michael Kimball and Matthew Savoca, whose “I Don’t Know,” I Said will be released by Publishing Genius next month, as well as others. It cost $5 and includes music from Drunk Monk.

Following on the heels of last week’s CityLit Festival and Smartish Pace’s party, and preceding a big WORMS reading, also at the Metro Gallery, next month, this carnival continues to demonstrate the health of our literary community.
