800 Post (at Leavenworth), free

* In a few weeks, Minor Americans and local heroes kathryn l. pringle and Magadalena Zurawski are packing up their MINERAL green Toyota Corolla and heading south. Soon Durham, North Carolina will be all the richer, and those of us holding down the fort in the Bay Area will have to find them on their Minor American blog.

Magdalena Zurawski adopted the title "Minor American Poet" in the late 90s after coming across a reference listing Frank O'Hara as a minor American poet. She started a blog bearing that imprint in 2004, and in 2005, was joined by kathryn l. pringle.

kathryn l. pringle is a graduate of the MFA program at SFSU. Her chapbook Temper and Felicity Are Lovers was published by TAXT. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Fourteen Hills, 42opus, Alice Blue, Denver Quarterly, Dusie, Em Literary Asylum, foursquare, sidebrow, small town, and others. She is co-editor, along with Elise Ficarra & Magdalena Zurawski, of the brand new print journal minor/american.

Magdalena Zurawski's novel The Bruise was recently awarded the Ronald Sukenick Innovative Fiction Prize, sponsored by FC2. FC2 will publish the novel in the fall of 2008.

Hi Maggie.

I'm checking your blog from a psych ward cause that's how I roll. Like, totally hardcore.

Q: Dude, Fall '08 is like 5000 lightyears away. Got a galley? I have the TAXT sample and it's amazing. I promise to force my GF to review it or something. Not like you'd give two shits about that. I just want the novel/poem. Waa.

Hey Y'all Thanks for putting the sweet post and pix of me and miranda up for all to see -
it was so great hooking up with you too at Burmese food but
WHO said Frank O was a minor American poet?
See you in NC - Let's have a poetry party mid August in the mountains - we can paint my car
