PLU Open Mic featuring Margo Berdeshevsky

October 17, 2013 @ 8:00 pm

We are delighted to welcome Margo Berdeshevesky as our featured reader this week.

Jerome Rothenberg has written: There is in Margo Berdeshevsky’s work a rare persistence of the lyric voice, used with a sense of ecstasy & grief almost religious in its evocations. Absolutely modern & fearlessly romantic by turns, the poems circle the rich & threatened corners of the living planet & travel further into places marked by mythic & oneiric time. Berdeshevsky’s newest poetry collection is Between Soul and Stone.”(Sheep Meadow Press, 2011)

Her book of  short stories, Beautiful Soon Enough, illustrated with her own photo-montages, received Fiction Collective Two’s Innovative Fiction Award. Honors include the Robert H. Winner Award from the Poetry Society of America, and a selection for the Academy of American Poet’s Poem-for-a-day. Published in literary journals across the world, she worked in a survivor’s clinic in Aceh following the 2005 tsunami there, and a multi-genre novel, Vagrant, is next at the gate. Lifelong traveler, she currently lives in Paris. More information here.
