Nixes Mate & Airlie Press Poetry Reading

Nixes Mate is a navigational hazard in Boston Harbor. 42° 19' 47.9" North · 70° 56' 43.9" West

They want to challenge the preconceived notions of reading on the web by using off-the-shelf technology to build a best-in-breed literary magazine. More than a magazine, it's a website. They feature small-batch artisanal literature, created by writers who've been honing their craft the time-honored way: one line at a time.

Renuka Raghavan will be launching her Nixes Mate Poetry book, The Face I Desire.

Renuka Raghavan tends to focus on brief, dramatic prose and poetry. She is the author of Out of the Blue, (Big Table Publishing, 2017) a collection of short fiction and poetry.  Renuka serves as the fiction book reviewer at Červená Barva Press, a poetry reader for Indolent Books, and is a co-founder of the Poetry Sisters Collective. She writes and lives in Massachusetts with her family and beloved beagle.


This event is in conjunction with Airlie Press.

Airlie Press is a growing family, a tribe of poets who ferret out new voices to add to the choir of sustaining voices we long to hear, and they’ve invited us to sit at their generous table and listen.

Hannah Larrabee will be launching her Airlie Press Poetry book, Wonder Tissue.

Hannah Larrabee grew up on a blueberry farm in Maine, and somehow studied poetry with Charles Simic. She’s had work appear in: The Adirondack Review, Glass: A Journal of Poetry, Bomb Cyclone, Nixes Mate, Barren Magazine, and elsewhere. Her chapbook, Murmuration, was part of the Seven Kitchens Press series for LGBTQ poets. In 2016, Hannah was selected by NASA to see the James Webb Space Telescope in person, and her poems were displayed at Goddard Space Center. She has been awarded an Arctic Circle Residency and will be sailing around Svalbard with artists and scientists in 2020. Hannah holds an MFA from the University of New Hampshire.
