Bill Campana reads at the only place in town where you can buy The Hit List...

A special free show for fans of Mr Campana, he's going to read what he wants, which, I would guess, is probably all new material fresh out of 2010. He will write more material in the first 12 days of 2010 than most poets will write all year.

Bill has published many Chapbooks, and produced one of statement collections of the performance poetry movement of the last decade. Do not miss this tremendous poetry talent.

Date:Tuesday, January 12, 2010
Time:8:00pm - 10:00pm
Location:Evermore Nevermore
Street:127 W Main St
City/Town:Mesa, AZ

2009 is fast coming to a close, and we here at Anthology central are already gearing up for a fantastic and busy 2010. As we look back at all the good we did in 2009, we reorganized and re-energized the Mesa Poetry Slam, finding a new home for the event and helping continue a tradition that has lasted in Mesa for 15 years. We paid registration fees for all of our poets that attended national events in 2009, and we helped raise money for both our team and our Women of the World and Individual World Poetry Slam representatives. We hosted the best in Arizona at the Cactus Slam 2.0, and we hosted the largest ever Poe Show at the Mesa Arts Center. We continued the tradition of The Valentine's Day Massicree. In one week, we will select our 2010 Women of the World Representative, and in two weeks, we will host our annual slammie awards.

We brought The Pin Cushion Orchestra, Paul Lipman and others into Downtown Mesa. 2009, for all of the challenges that it brought to us, is ending on a strong note. We'll be publishing our first ever annual Anthology of the best poems from the slam this year. We hosted performance poetry workshops, and organized our first reunion show of poets all of our past slam teams. We started AZPoetrypedia.com, and it has quickly grown into an invaluable rescource for poets and others regarding the history of Poetry in Arizona.

In 2010, we want to do even more, but we need your help. You know that we operate on a thin budget, and we'd like to have some breathing room to promote our 2010 events, pay some of the bigger names in poetry to visit Mesa in 2010, and continue to offer the community, both poet and audience the absolute best value for a poetry event.

So we are asking for you, yes, you, to chip in towards our goal of $2,500 by the end of December. Help us to help grow what we have started, a community based poetry community. We'd like to bring Voices of Youth back in 2010, keeping it open to everyone and anyone. And you can help us do that. We'd like to host the largest Mesa Slamoff Ever, sharing the excitement and rush of a huge crowd with any poet willing to dedicate to their art.

And you can make that happen. Please act now. All contributions are tax deductable,

Us the Paypal Link right here to donate today, you can also see how much we have received so far. Anthology's address is PO Box 4411, Mesa, AZ 85211-4411 for postal mail donations.
