yaelIn September we brought you Michael Ingram’s rousing lyrics. In October, we had the wit of John MacDonald, a long time member of the DC Poetry Project and participant in PK’s Writers on the Green Line Workshops. John put together a great show, which included a Choral Presentation of several of his poems.

This month, November 17, we bring you the poetic gifts of Yael Flusberg. Yael’s essays, poetry, and reviews have been published in anthologies and journals including America: What’s My Name?, DC Poets Against the War: An Anthology, Lilith, Potomac Review, and Travelers’ Tales.

The complete interdisiplinary performance-piece, with music (both original and historic), photographs–new and old–and film will premiere in early spring 2014.

The Open Mic has been expanded, so bring your poems, short short stories, and songs.
