Martin Holt addresses Naked Words

The most recent N.W. was somewhat strange. I recommend you watch it--if you are lucky enough to live in Helena and have cable--on channel 11. Naked Words runs every Thursday night at 10 as part of Martin Holt's Video Journal. If you don't live in Helena--perhaps Miami or Singapore?--I suggest you book a flight here immediately, rent a motel room, send out for some pizza and a couple of our fine local hookers, and check out the show.

Naked Words audience from Reader's viewpoint.

Well, a certain portion of the possible "listeners."

There wasn't a featured reader so the usual suspects took to the microphone to read, or spout, or spew--Brynn, David, myself, and others . . .

There was a minor scuffle when Emily (green sweatered) in a jesting spirit attempted to boot Dane (thuggish black leather jacket lower left) off the stage. Dane struck out with a jab to his right catching his attacker crisply in the neck.

The incident was quickly over. But have the individuals involved stopped fuming over it in their respective camps? Tune in next week. Perhaps we should develope a competition--Last Poet Standing?

Speaking of next week: Michael Revere has promised to read then. A new long poem.

See you there.Posted by Picasa

Hibbard and Harpole at Nkd Wrds!

Scott Hibbard and Tom Harpole were the featured readers this past Thursday at Miller's Crossing.

Here, Tom attempts a "Brokeback Mountain" moment with Scott, who's having no part in it.

Scott read a section from his work-in-progress, an historical novel set during (and just prior to) the Civil War.

Tom read two essays in his traditional meticulous and hilarious prose style.

Nkd Wrds was pleased to host these two fine writers, long-standing members of the Montana literary community. Posted by Picasa
