Last night Jennifer Massoni, Huntington Sharp, and I had the pleasure of attending Literary Death Match Episode 7at the Rickshaw Stopin San Francisco. Red Room Authors Jane Ganahl and Alan Black along with Mia Lipman were judges for the evening. Another Red Room author, the legendary Clive Matson delivered an electric reading of the most sensuous poetry I’ve ever heard. Justin Chin’s and Rupert Estanislao’sreadings were both bawdy and ripe. Listening to them I wondered if this is what it was like to hear Shakespeare’s sonnets at the Globe, epic yet down to earth and accessible. Casual conversation quickly revealed how excited about redroom.com everyone was. I still marvel at the possibilities this unique community has to offer the literary world.
