Wm Epes

William (Bill) Epes has several projects going -- all of which are worthy of our attention.

Stand Line Break (Private, invitation only group --   Anyone who has an interest in poetry or the arts can join. Anyone on FB can find the group and request to become a member. He approves membership quickly. If you mention PSSC, that will help him know where your interest lies. People can also: Friend him (WM Epes) on FB, Message him your interest; or email him at strandlinebreak@gmail.com .

 

The "strand line break" FB group launched in Spring 2020 as an arts resource group, a combination chandler and stevedore to support the small, private FB poetry group called "air / port line break." In late June, this design was modified to give wider access to members’ friends and fellow artists, lyricists, and poets. First invitees to "strand line break" were past and present members of a/plb. New invitees to "strand line break" include anyone who believes he/she/they might contribute online resources to a FB arts community. Bring articles, podcast links, events, book covers, and all discussion of poetry, art, and lyric that supports the making of new art -- and its understanding. We are intentionally inclusive and welcoming of resources posted in any language. We started with 20 topics and welcome your suggestions for new topics.

Charleston Library Society

The Charleston Library Society hosts our reading programs. We want to fully support their work as well. Here's a special event coming up!

CLS will be hosting Traveus (Trey) Hill, author of A Poetry of Life Transformation, for our Coffee with an Author series next week. Hill will be in conversation with his, and our, dear friend in poetry, Marcus Amaker in our Main Reading Room, along with Brandon Silver and Mark Congdon. All of these men have been extremely influential to Hill and have encouraged his writing. Amaker was named Charleston, South Carolina’s, first Poet Laureate in 2016 and Academy of American Poets Fellow in 2021. Silver is the Co-Founder of The People’s Beat, a multimedia digital news organization that seeks to empower Black and Brown communities, and Congdon is founder of Into the Ideal, a company driven to help those struggling to find their path in life.

 

The running theme heard when connecting with these four gentlemen last week was how to bring joy back online by way of words: "the ultimate conversion to order from life's chaos." This event is going to be incredible! In addition to these extraordinary conversations and readings, Hill will openly discuss his inspiration and creative process behind his new release, A Poetry of Life Transformation. Time will be held for questions at the end.

 

We look forward to hosting such talented members of our community, and of course, seeing you and the Poetry Society here next Wednesday!!
