1. Poetry Update

    Sun 14 April 2002
    By John Mark Schofield in Poetry

    I haven't done a blog update in ages. I think there's an inverse relationship between how much I'm working and how often I post on my blog. When I first started this thing, business was slow. I mean really slow. I mean sending applications to Starbucks slow ...

  2. Valley Contemporary Poets

    Fri 22 February 2002
    By John Mark Schofield in Poetry

    Went to the Valley Contemporary Poets reading at the Cobalt Café Tuesday night. The Cobalt, hosted by Rick Lupert, was my "home reading" when I first started out in poetry. I haven't been back in years, so it was tremendously exciting to be there. I had a great time ...

  3. A Weekend of Poetry

    Sun 10 February 2002
    By John Mark Schofield in Poetry

    A good weekend for poetry so far. On Friday I went to Rapp Saloon, which rocked. I really thought the night was going to suck, because at the beginning of the reading there were about 10 people in the room. People kept trickling in though the night, and by the ...

  4. Psychobabble Review

    By John Mark Schofield in Poetry

    Just got back from open mike at Psychobabble Cafe on Vermont. They've got a new host (at least, new since the last time I was there) and it's a damn good night of poetry. The highlight was the feature, Gina Loring, who I've seen several times at ...

  5. Rocking Night at "Mia"

    Sun 20 January 2002
    By John Mark Schofield in Poetry

    I hope to God "Mia" has come into its own and last night wasn't some kind of a fluke because last night was one of the rockin'est nights of poetry I've heard. Anyone who wasn't there missed a damn good reading.

    I came in about 40 ...

    By John Mark Schofield in Poetry

    Went to the reading at Midnight Special Bookstore yesterday. It's interesting how each reading has a different character, even when some of the same people attend. The MS has has a generally older crowd of readers -- with the average age in the 50's or higher -- with a surprisingly ...

  7. Green Poetry Reading Notes

    Sat 12 January 2002
    By John Mark Schofield in Poetry

    Went to "Green" at Tanner's Culver City last night -- was somewhat disappointed. This is the third time I've been to Green, and the first two were absolutely incandescent, fiery nights of rockin' poetry. Last night's was good, no doubt about it -- the equal to many other readings ...

  8. Response to 'Mixed Night at Mia'

    Tue 08 January 2002
    By John Mark Schofield in Poetry

    I received a very interesting e-mail from someone today taking me to task for "sitting in judgment" on other poets and "saying such negative things about them."

    She also said, quite memorably, that "The thing I find most disturbing is that you were paid for your performance and you still ...
