Poetica Erotica - November 8th

Just when you thought it was going to start cooling down...

Poetica Erotica are ready to lace up their corsets 
and spice up your poetry night.   
Shawn Aveningo, Lytton Bell, and Cynthia Linville explore lust 
and longing with irreverence and, at times, humor, 
but always with surprising sensuality.

  Join us on Thursday, November 8th at 7 p.m.

Shawn Aveningo was voted one of THE BEST POETS in the 2009 Sacramento News & Review Reader Poll. Shawn’s poetry has appeared in numerous anthologies, magazines, and e-zines such as Savage Melodies & Last Call Serenades, Seattle Erotic Anthology, Poetry Now, Sacramento News & Review, Survivor’s Review, POETZ, Rattlesnake Review, WTF, The Ophidian, Wait a Minute, I Have to Take Off My Bra and Medusa’s Kitchen. She has been a featured performer in the Greater Sacramento Area, as well as San Francisco, Sausalito, Grass Valley, Seattle and St Louis. Shawn’s a Show-Me girl from Missouri, graduated Summa Cum Laude from University of Maryland and is a very proud mother of three.

Lytton Bell has published three books (A Path Before Winter, 1998; The Book of Chaps, 2002 and Nectar, 2011), won five poetry contests and performed at many local venues, including the Sacramento Poetry Center, Luna’s CafĂ©, Vox and The Book Collector, to name a few. Her work has appeared in over four dozen publications.  Lytton’s latest book Nectar can be found on Amazon in eBook format (no, you don't need a Kindle!) for just $2.99.   Ms. Bell earned a poetry scholarship to the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Arts in 1988 and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Bryn Mawr College in 1993.  She is a civil servant by day.

Cynthia Linville has lived in London, New York, San Francisco, and outside of Washington DC but keeps coming back to live in her hometown of Sacramento. She has taught in the English Department at California State University, Sacramento, since 2000 and has served as Managing Editor of Convergence: an online journal of poetry and art since 2008. She is active in the local poetry scene, hosting readings, and reading with the group Poetica Erotica as well as on her own. A music aficionado with a theater background, she is usually out and about supporting the arts in Sacramento and in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her book of collected poems, The Lost Thing, is available from Cold River Press.

This event is FREE and everyone is invited!
