Recent credits include Edgar Allan Poet Journal #3, San Francisco Peace and Hope literary and art journal, anthologies The Revolutionary Poets Brigade, Men in the Company of Women and Los Angeles Poetry Society Features amongst several places where his work is recognized.
This guerrilla reading is at the 2015 LA LitCrawl, at the Metro Red Line Station in North Hollywood. Berkowitz read with other members of the Los Angeles Poet Society.
Berkowitz calls himself “a human camera of observation.” He loves the magnificence of nature and its many settings as well as the pulse and stimulation of city streets. His greatest reward is connecting with other sentient beings, which you can do virtually at http://www.jamesberkowitz.com
Norman Molesko is LA’s own “young oldie” poet. He’s an ambassador for seniors, and he’s currently working his second-half-of-life-career in the Senior-Advocacy-Through-Poetry-Program (SATPP), in partnership with the Los Angeles Poet Society.
True to form, Molesko read his poetry at the 2015 LitCrawl in Los Angeles at the NoHo Red Line Metro stop. Think you can keep up with this guy? Go ahead, give it a try!
The Los Angeles Poet Society was out in force at the 2015 LitCrawl in Los Angeles. They read and recited their poetry at the North Hollywood red line Metro station. GuerrillaReads caught Juan Cardenas on camera while we were there.
Cardenas is a poet, drummer and classically trained flautist, as well as a bilingual educator with California Poets in the Schools. He was born in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico, crossed the desert with his family at the young age of 10, and was raised in the north San Fernando Valley. Here he reads a poem about his first-hand experiences, Border Truth Number 170.
Look for guerrilla readings from three more LAPS poets at the LitCrawl – coming soon!
