Come join us on Friday at 7:30 pm as we feature four incredible writers: John Buckley, Dan Lau, Lindsay Merbaum, & Joel Tomfohr. Lone Glen is a quarterly reading and art series motivated by a love of creative community and a passion for all art forms. Our intention? To create a space in which diverse artists, genres, and genre bending creators can mingle, share, and inspire…On March 9th, we will see what happens when fiction meets poetry, hearing from four talented and eclectic writers who share a sharp eye for image. John and Dan might be described as narrative poets with often a deep satiric or comedic edge, while Lindsay’s irony strewn and captivating stories frequently rewrite Greek myth. Joel’s experimental prose is a mastery of metaphor and character complexity.

Find us at 239 Cotter Street, SF, 94112 (see “Directions” on this site for more details!)

Feel free to bring a friend who creates or admires those who do. We will provide some wine, soda, and simple treats but if you have the means or memory, please bring something to share.

More about our writers:

Originally from the Detroit area, John F. Buckley now lives in Orange County. He has published his work in a number of places. Like everyone else in the world and his dentist, he was once nominated for a Pushcart Prize. His chapbook Breach Birth appeared on Propaganda Press in March 2011. His full-length collaboration with Martin Ott, Poets’ Guide to America, is coming out on Brooklyn Arts Press in summer 2012. This is his real hair. Those are his real teeth. All recent weight gain should be blamed on his quitting smoking.

Dan Lau is a Kundiman Fellow, William Dickey Fellow and a native of Queens, New York. Currently, he is completing an MA in English, Creative Writing at San Francisco State University. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Bateau, RHINO, The Collagist, CRATE, and The Olive Tree Review.

Lindsay Merbaum holds an MFA in Fiction from Brooklyn College where she was a recipient of the Himan Brown Award for Fiction. Her stories have appeared in a number of magazines/journals such as Gargoyle, Epiphany, and PANK. She is currently finishing a magical-realist novel inspired by the four years she spent living in Ecuador.

Joel received his MFA in 2010 from Mills College. He currently works at the Academy of Art University and lives in Oakland.
