The F-Bomb Reading Series is back from our winter hiatus! Please join us on Tuesday January 18 at 7:30 PM MST on Zoom. Our featured readers will be long-time F-Bombers Carol Covington and Lynn Brewer, hosted by another long-time F-Bomber Nick Morris.
The theme for January is “New Beginnings,” but as always the theme is optional. 5-minute open mic spots are available to all who wish to read their flash fiction (or poetry/memoir/whatever!). You can contact Nick through the Facebook event page or arrive to the Zoom room around 7:15 PM on January 18. Please join us if you can, and feel free to share this event with everyone! We love getting new F-Bombers from around the world!
HOST Nick Morris is the curator of the F-Bomb Reading Series, as well as a professor of humanities at Community College of Denver, a musician, the author of the short story collections Tapeworm and The Boy in the Well, the Dungeon Master for the D&D real-play podcast We Slay Things, an expatriate of the Deep South, a graduate of Arkansas Tech University and Naropa’s Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, a former editor of the literary journals Nebo and Bombay Gin, a resident of Denver, and utterly incapable of winning his fantasy football league.
FEATURED READER Carol Covington is a recent graduate of MSU Denver, earning an IDP in Healing Trauma through Creative Self-Expression. She has spent the last six decades waiting for this time in her life to be the only thing she has ever wanted to be, a Poetry-writing storyteller. Of that which she is most proud of included poems and short stories written in the last four years while pursuing her BA. A former freelance journalist with MSU’s RED Magazine, a contributing writer with the Veteran’s Writing Group anthology “Still Coming Home,” Carol is currently compiling a collection of her work for submission this year.
FEATURED READER Lynn Brewer is a writer living near Denver. Her first novel was so blasphemous she had to self-publish “She Bears a King,” the story of one ordinary woman who gets impregnated by Jesus Christ—only this Christ is a gay celebrity living the elite life in Hollywood. In 2006, Lynn founded Cliterature Journal and went on to edit and publish more than fifty issues over 14 years. The bastard literary child of Sylvia Plath and Jack Kerouac, her writing oscillates from the hilarious to the tragic, often in the same sentence.
