Taking It Off for Your Art

UPDATE: Reb was kind enough to point out that this little article is getting around! Even Mr. Silliman took a look.

My article on Burlesque Poetry Hour just came out in the February issue of DC North (one of those freebie mags you see in boxes by the metro), published by Capital Community News. According to the editors, BPH = Strip Poetry = Valentine's Day theme. Who knew? I'm pretty happy with the article--though I'm going to have to term it "participatory journalism," since the alternative is "reporting with blatant bias."

And no, I didn't know that my torso was going to make a cameo appearance in the layout.

Find the text here. / See the pretty version here (PDF, about 1.5 MB).

Thanks for taking a look! I'm glad people like it. I certainly enjoyed the...er...field research.

Maybe I can write all those martinis off as a business expense.

Saw your post on my blog. Thanks.
Yes, really enjoyed your article and it's great to see so much interest in it.

I think the garter was a good choice.

I love the article!

There's something uniquely pleasing about having readers respond to a news article, versus a poem--I wasn't expecting it would be such a thrill. Thanks folks! I'm just happy if it gives BPH a little boost.
