Nixes Mate Poetry Reading/Book Launch

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.

This event is free and open to the public.

Tonight's authors:

Heather Sullivan, Method Acting for the Afterlife

Heather's first collection, Waiting for an Answer, was released from Nixes Mate Books in 2017. Her work has appeared in numerous online and print publications such as, Chiron Review, Paper and Ink Literary Zine, San Pedro River Review, Trailer Park Quarterly, Common Ground Review, Barbaric Yawp, Big Hammer, Ygdrasil, Free State Review and Open Letters Monthly. She lives in Revere, MA with her husband, Rusty Barnes, co-creator of the three most marvelous humans on the planet, a small herd of cats and the water’s edge is just a short walk away.

Elissa is a writer, historian, and professor of cultural and communication studies at the Universidad Veracruzana, Mexico. Her books include The Stridentist Movement in Mexico: The Avant-Garde and Cultural Change in the 1920s, and Women Filmmakers in Mexico: The Country of Which We Dream.
