Chad Deal won an award from MENSA for his short story on nearly losing his genitals at Burning Man. And that’s not even the most interesting thing covered during this episode’s interview. He also won a blog contest by the San Diego Reader, which got him out of the pizza joint he was working at and landed him in Tijuana. In an ongoing project he cal…
 
In this podcast episode with Adam Greenfield we get personal, which is fitting because his latest (and FIRST) book, Regarding the Monkey, is a collection of very personal and autobiographical poems. It’s a book edited and published by yours truly, Puna Press, so you know it’s void of any bullshit. And that is kind of Adam’s whole philosophy anyway.…
 
WE’RE BACK. And a concealed writer is exposed. Previous SAY SOMETHING, ANYTHING guest Lizzie Wann mentioned seeing a kick ass poet named Jon Tobias read at an open mic… and nowhere else. So we decided to change that. As it turns out Jon Tobias will be published in the Aztec Literary Review, but being published and recognized isn’t something he seek…
 
Though she humbly downplays it in the episode, Lizzie Wann was an integral part in bringing the slam poetry scene to San Diego it in the late 90s /early 2000s. She also was one of the first people to start a series of house concerts with local acoustic acts-- an event that paved the way for many similar series (some of which are still active today)…
 
Exuberant in his performance style, perceptive in his discourse, and unusual in his coffee preference. Both funny and insightful, SAMSI is a writer (or, as he puts it, more of a conceptual explorer) who has spent many years hitchin’ and hoppin’ around the United States. It stemmed from a life-altering epiphany atop the Golden Gate Bridge. He’s been…
 
Tazha Williams wonderfully hosts the Red Poets Society weekly open mic, so we let her do the talking on this one. Tazha = poet + artist + sustainable farmer. And studied Fine Art Painting at California College of the Arts in the San Francisco bay area. And she has won various awards. And her artwork’s been featured in the San Diego Union Tribune, o…
 
Rudy G is a funny poet with John Lennon sunglasses, a love for music, and a person one take poem record. His poetry group, the Mightier P.E.N.S performs all around San Diego. He talks about self disipline (or lack there of) and why writing for an audience can be better than writing for yourself. He also talks about bombing... bad. But his easgoing …
 
Joe Limer is one of the five poets selected to compete on the San Diego Slam Team for the NATIONAL POETRY SLAM in August. He’s also the co-founder of Glassless Minds. He’s also a professor of political science at Palomar College. He also went to law school and was (briefly) a lawyer, before he realized winning didn’t always exactly mean winning. No…
 
Poet Leslie Beebe is a part of the San Diego poetry performance group, Mightier Pens. She also has a chapbook out and is currently working on her second entitled The Heartbreak Chronicles. We get real on things like audience connection and broken hearts. The greatest misconception about poetry? That it’s all lala romance and flowers. The best piece…
 
Zaria Suggs is this week’s guest on SAY SOMETHING, ANYTHING, and her spoken word style poems are particularly impressive-- especially for an eighteen year old. The SDSU freshman talks about being a singer /writer / performer for as long as she can remember. She weaves her words together and speaks them eloquently, a product not only of her natural …
 
Spoken word poet Rolland Tizuela tells the full story of how he went from backpacking across the Pacific Rim to founding the super rad art / poetry group, Glassless Minds (Try and figure that one out. Or just read about it on their Facebook page.) The story is part kismet (something about a disappearing guy with an espresso machine), part pure love…
 
Anna Zappoli is an artist and a poet from the Province of Catania in Italy, which makes her amazing right off the bat. She could be saying anything and her voice would sound like sweet poetry or music. As it turns out, though, the words she does use are filled with artistic wisdom and incredible input on the discipline it takes to be a writer or an…
 
In this BITCHIN' (our guest’s current favorite word) episode of SAY SOMETHING, ANYTHING, poet Garrett Bryant reads some incredible poetry and discusses the benefits of an MFA Creative Writing program. This is a bitchin’ (had to) episode for writers who have or are debating getting their MFA in Creative Writing. From first hand experience, Garrett t…
 
Michael Klam is both funny and helpful in his poetry, so it’s cool that most of his answers to the questions (questions which deal primarily with writers' frustration when it comes to validation that their work is important / has an impact / matters) come in poem form. Like his poem “Bad Puppet Shows: A Field Guide for Young Poets in Job Interviews…
 
It's the second episode of SAY SOMETHING, ANYTHING and this time we're in a bar. Sunny Rey, author of the book Quotes and Poems by a Nobody, sits down with Kara (and a bloody mary) to read two intimate poems (unintentionally accompanied by some raging bar music). Sunny talks about writing for herself vs. writing for other people, the internet as a …
 
In the very first episode of poetry podcast "Say Something, Anything", renowned San Diego poet Chris Vannoy reads two of his beat-esque poems. He also addresses teaching poetry in the academic setting and how that can stifle creativity. His solution? Poetry in bars, open mics, performing with musicians. Chris Vannoy reads his poetry with an exubera…
