Thank you everyone who came out to last night’s Essay Fiesta. We had a blast, and we hope you did too. We heard stories of Santa, prison dancing, comic books, Facebook, dentistry, bar brawls and smugness. Plus, we raised some pretty good dough for 826CHI. High five!
In other news, poet and Essay Fiesta alumnus J.W. Basilo just did an interview with L.A. comic and Essay Fiesta alumnus Mike O’Connell. It’s part of Basilo’s podcast Busted Mouth. It’s certainly worth a listen or two or three. Hear it here.
