Subtext continues its monthly reading series with readings by Bethany Wright & Roberta Olson at our new home at the Chapel Performance Space on the 7th of May 2008. Donations for admission will be taken at the door on the evening of the performance.
Bethany Wright has authored three chapbooks, including Indeed, Insist (a mystery) [Ugly Duckling Presse]. Other poems can be found in Fascicle, Swerve, The Brooklyn Rail, SHIFTER, Bird Dog, and Arson. Excerpts of her solo performance work Hark the Harbingers have been presented at The Brooklyn Museum, PS122, and Zieher Smith Gallery in New York, and at Nocturnal Gallery and The Mizpah in Portland, OR. In 2002, she co-founded FO (A) RM magazine, and in 2006 co-directed / curated the Gilded Pony Performance Festival in upstate NY. Wright currently teaches English, art theory & time-based arts at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland.
Roberta Olson's work has appeared most recently in The Golden Handcuffs Review and in "Signs of Life 2008" a collaborative catalog published by Facere Jewelry Art Gallery in Seattle . Two chapbooks of her work have been published, All These Fair and Flagrant Things (etherdome press) and Some Numerous Dwarf Rippings (2007, Flash+Card press). She lives in Seattle with writer John Olson and cat Toby.
