From time to time, we will update the site with upcoming publications and readings by Peauxdunquians (so come on, y’all, let’s get to work!).
Coming up in less than two weeks, four Peauxdunquians have been invited to read from recent work at the Words and Music Conference put on by the Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society in New Orleans. On Wednesday, November 9, beginning at 4:00 p.m., Words and Music will host an event of readings on the conference theme, “Life & Literature in the Global Village,” in the second floor gallery of the Cabildo. The event will be led by nationally acclaimed poet and LSU writer-in-residence Laura Mullen, and will feature new work by New Orleans poet Brad Richard. Also reading from new and recent work will be Peauxdunquians Maurice Carlos Ruffin, Terri Stoor, J.Ed. Marston, and Tad Bartlett. Also scheduled to read will be New Orleans poet (and gold medal winner in the poetry category of the William Faulkner-William Wisdom competition) M’Bilia Meeker.
In publication news, Maurice will see his story, “Mercury Forges,” published in issue 36.2 of REAL: Regarding Arts & Letters, and his essay, “Cheating the Muse,” published in issue 62 of The Apalachee Review.
