here’s what happened on wednesday

*

this past wednesday, achiote press editors (me, jenn reimer, and jason buchholz) were invited by lyn hejinian–one of the coolest poets ever–to speak to her writing class about the ins and outs of chapbook & small press publishing. the students were very responsive and asked many great questions–it seems that many of them are serious about starting their own press. another neat thing was that charles altieri is co-teaching the course so it was neat to meet him. here are some pics:

after the class, i took the BART (bay area rapid transit) to 12th street in oakland and met up with poet oscar bermeo and rode with him to his reading in san francisco at books and bookshelves. as always, he was fantastic. and i was very happy to hear dewayne dickerson and camille dungy. helluva lineup. check out oscar’s blog for his report on the night.

here are some pics i took:
