Pittsburgh Literary Round-Up
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.
