Pittsburgh Literary Round-Up

by Brian Tierney    /  May 27, 2011  / No comments



Sampsonia Way’s new, comprehensive, literary calendar lists events of all types and genres, and according to its editor, Renée Alberts, “fosters inter-community involvement and expands Pittsburgh’s literary scene through cross-pollination.”

This Saturday, check out the free RECTL Variety Show, which takes place under the bloomfield bridge on the Polish Hill side from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. Participants will have three minutes per performance, and walk-on performers are welcome and encouraged.

And on Tuesday, Poet/host Kelli Stevens Kane invites all poets, including first-time slammers, to the Fleeting Pages Poetry Slam in East Liberty (located in the defunct Borders). The event begins at 8:30 p.m. and cost $5 for entry. The poet with the highest score gets a $100 prize.

These are only two events in next week’s packed literary agenda. To check out more literary events around town, look at our detailed calendar. Read more about the new calendar.
