April Feature Jon Taylor
Jon Taylor started out long ago by writing song lyrics, and his poems today demonstrate his roots as a lyricist. All his poems are in four movements like a standard song lyric, and many of them employ “hook lines,” as they are called on Music Row, in the same repetition patterns used since the Tin Pan Alley era. Jon is proud to be the featured reader at Poetry in the Brew for the poetry month of April.
April Guest Host Christine Hall
Christine Hall lives for the art. Her chosen forms include writing, performing, gardening, subtle rearranging of everyday objects in public spaces, parenting, editing, lucid dreaming, and helping organize events such as Poetry in the Brew.
On May 28th, Christine returns to Exit/In’s stage for The Cabaret Noir Collective presents: The Time Traveler’s Ball with special guest Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands. Like their page to keep up with the anachronistic antics leading up to the show.
