Extension of Deadline for Paris Lit Up n°5 The deadline for submissions to the literary and artistic magazine PLU5 has been extended to Saturday, 30th September 2017. This is to ensure that more/plus of you will send us your individual expressions of what makes you you. You might want to consider sending 5 poems, 5000 words of prose, 15 pieces of photography and/or artwork (lacework, DIY, graffiti, self-portraits, lacquer, etc.).

PLU Open Mic featuring Stephanie Marcella

Posted on 10 Feb 2017 in PLU Open Mic | 0 comments

Open Mic last night was filled with the beautifully delicate and strong songs of Stephanie Marcella. Matt opened round one with gut-wrenching yet funny poems about the army interventions in taliban-heavy regions and monkey king figurines in China. Jonathan turned in a silent, awkward and hilarious performance entitled “the melancholy existence of a page turner.” Thomas, who’d seen an advertisement for a watch called Jardin du Palais Royal that touched on the heat of another person’s epidermus, went full anatonomical in his love poem to someone’s medically-correctly-cited organs. Ed hefted his heavy-looking electric piano onstage, then failed to turn it on, and fell back on that mainstay of stage performance, latin poetry declaimed in latin. Zoé read from a poem scrawled on a multitude of little papers scotched one to another, hinting at love, insisting that “le désir n’a...
