Hump-a-day late

Hump-a-day late:

So much to read, so little time! Please let me make it easier for you:

1) KGB Bar in NYC 6/23/12: Oh what a night! It was a wonderful event, with the main headliners Christopher Allen and Matt Potter, and an open mike format that let roughly 15 writers the chance to dazzle the KGB Bar (rather an easy feat, to be honest…it’s a dark and dingy space). The readers came from all over the globe, Germany, Australia and England, and the audience was very appreciative. And though some hosts would love to take full credit for any event, this one was really all about the excellent writers and readers. Bravo, to all of you brave folks! Here is one video, courtesy of Bill Yerger. And there are several more at YouTube:
