report from the lab • pushcart nominations • tour through town kickoff show!

Meghan Thornton and SB Stokes put together a gripping show to close out our third year with a tense, gothic, poetry-heavy first set and a fiction-heavy second. It was the first time we ever had a guest curator (SB), and I don’t think Kevin Killian will mind when I report that he called the show “seamless” and told me “the curators did you proud.” Here they introduce the show, and SB has some words on his experience:

You can watch the entire show here, read it here, and order your own perfectbound copy here. (You can’t read the way Nora Toomey had the whole house singing, or what it was like when John Panzer hugged Matthew James DeCoster, or what it felt like to fill The Lab together, or…).

(But you can listen to the music SB put together for the show)

QUIET LIGHTNING 38: Intro & Intermission Music from rabidmonkey69 on 8tracks.

We are proud to announce our 2012 Pushcart Prize nominations:

Having read and re-read and re-reread the 12 books we published this year, I can’t begin to tell you how hard it was to narrow our selections down to six; it was a truly humbling experience and I want to thank you all for making this such a wonderful year. When you have the time, you can watch all six: Before we move on to talk about 2013, I just want to say: To all of you who submitted your work, put the shows together, volunteered, and told your friends: it’s been a landmark year for us and we couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks for bringing the lightning!

Three more announcements before we move into 2013:

  1. We have opened nominations for our next Neighborhood Heroes show. More details coming soon, but you can nominate as many people as you want.
  2. We are taking submissions for curators. If you’re interested in putting a show together, this is the link for you.
  3. We’ve also added a testimonials page. When you have a moment, read it and weep (no, seriously).

But enough reflection! In 2013 we’re teaming up with a different literary series or organization every month for a Tour Through Town. The idea is to create a unique hybrid show that presents some of each of our defining features in the hopes that we can build on our sense of a literary community. We’re going to kick off the tour on Wednesday, January 16th with a show at the Sports Basement. We’ll be accepting submissions until the ball drops on 2012, so send in your writing before it’s too late. (How many puns can you find?) Our following show will be a collaboration with 826 Valencia at the Pirate Supply Store on February 4th. For that show, we are only accepting submissions from authors between the ages of 6-18. You probably want to put that on your calendar. Regular submissions will return for March, when we team up with Porchlight at the Verdi Club on the 18th. Half the show will be true stories told with no notes (curated by Beth Lisick and Arline Klatte), mixed in with selections from our anything goes submission pile. We also hope to harness the grace and charm that Beth and Arline have been bringing to this series for the last ten years. Come see!

We’ll be touring throughout the year, and likely beyond, and though we can’t announce anything more for now we can say we’ll be mashing up Quiet Lightning with The Rumpus, Why There Are Words, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, the Conservatory of Flowers, and Litquake, and we’ll let you know as more things develop.

If you’re not already signed up to receive our notifications via email, now might be a good time to do so. As you may have deduced, we won’t be doing our first Monday shows in 2013.

We don’t know exactly what’s going to happen up ahead but we’re excited to do new things with more people in different places, to continue to build on what we’ve established, and to work more closely with the public as we move forward. (The public? When has there been a difference?) As always, we welcome all feedback, suggestions, and participation. We’re looking to bring more people aboard and will soon have a list of things we’re seeking right here on the site.

So come on back. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter… Quiet Lightning, coming to your idea of town soon.

See you on tour,
Evan Karp

ace in the boxcar

For the first time, I didn’t vote on the submissions. I didn’t introduce the show. Thanks to Litseen‘s assistant, Evelyn Manangan-Price, I didn’t have to film, either [click here to watch]. It was a sweet cherry on the mondae that I got to perform one of my poems, too, and one that really forced the issue of my introducing the shows. Sometimes it takes something like that to enact a change. Point is, we all know what we’re doing now; the board is trained up – that was evident Monday night! Now we can bring our own aesthetics to the shows. Now we can play with the form. Wait and see.

Don’t wait. Play with the form. On a personal level, I wish at least one person every show would address what we’re doing here. The board has different opinions on this (and for the record we have no specific guidelines regarding what we’re looking for).

We all admire writing; that’s not news; we all love community, too; we all want to be part of something significant, whatever it may be (if I can speak for you, which is what I do, and if you don’t like it… speak for yourself). I wrote the poem I performed specifically for Quiet Lightning. I had no idea whether it would be picked or not; I was rejected in February for a poem I think might be better. Point is: capture the moment. This show. That show. This movement. That: you don’t know until you talk about it; you can’t talk about it unless you are it; you’re it; talk about it; you change, talk about it; you are always it, ql, though the stage may change every month; though the standard manuals of style change; though the way you talk will invariably change if you keep talking and remain honest.

Talk like an Egyptian. There is no wrong way to say your heart.

All photos courtesy of our multi-talented friend Ian Tuttle, whose book StretchyHead we reviewed here. Speaking of books, we sold out but you can still get a copy with j. brandon loberg‘s beautiful new designs here. While we’re giving thanks, praise be to Charles Kruger and Meghan Thornton, who did an arguably flawless job sewing this show together. If you think so too, tell them. Putting these shows together is a lot of work and it takes real heart to do properly.

In that spirit, we could not have done Monday night without Kristen Kramer, Josey Duncan, and our volunteers: Laura Joakimson, Sandra Wassilie, L.J. Moore, and Christian Lee.

Our show would not matter if our audience members were not so attentive. Thank you. We had maybe more first timers at this show than ever before but it didn’t feel that way: everyone seemed to know and really care about each other; it was like a party where everyone was close and everyone was welcome.

Boxcar Playhouse was a perfect fit for Quiet Lightning and we will certainly do another show there and look forward to it. Perhaps most of all, though, we can now look forward to delicious Lagunitas beers every month! What a boon they have been to us: first of all, we were able to give a copy of sparkle + blink to every author for the very first time. Speak of heart; it speaks to you. Did you get some of those magnets? We have more and will bring them on May 7 (this is not a euphemism).

The best literary event in San Francisco is going to happen soon. It will be the next event you go to. It will be your open hand making contact with another open hand. It will be poetry. If you tell the tale it could become mythology. It is just around the corner. You should put on your funkiest shirt and part your hair, according to touch. You should not care about caring (you should just care). Everyone will be there. Personally, I would love you to look me in the eyes and say hello to everyone. Everyone will smile back.

Participate in the revolutions around you / some will not stop without you

This copy will be hard to use for promotional purposes. It was not written with anything else in mind. Please send in some of your work for our show on May 7th. We are delighted to meet new people every month and delighted to read new work by the same people every month. Submission deets are here but the deadline is the end of Wednesday, April 18th. We are also, as always, accepting art submissions, ideas, volunteers, and donations (tax exempt, of course).

Thanks everyone. This was truly a thrilling experience and we are excited for May 7, which will be at Alley Cat Books on 24th Street near Folsom. Curators for this next show will include – for the first time – a non-board member! How about that? Nicole McFeely and I will be putting this one together. Hope to see you on the page and on the stage.
