Join Mad Swirl this 1st Wednesday of May (aka 05.01.19) at 8:00 SHARP when as we swirl up the mic at our mad mic-ness home, The Regal Room (located inside of Independent Bar & Kitchen in the heart of Deep Ellum)!
This month, Mad Swirl Press will be officially launching our annual anthology, “The Best of Mad Swirl : v2018”
This full-color, 112-page collection is…
“…an anthology featuring 52 poets, 12 short fiction writers, and 4 artists whose works were presented on www.madswirl.com throughout 2018. Its editors reviewed the entire year’s output to ensure this collection is truly “the best of Mad Swirl.” The works represent diverse voices and vantages which speak to all aspects of this crazy swirl we call “life on earth.” Mad Swirl is a world-renowned arts and literature website. It is a platform, a showcase, and a stage for artistic expression in this mad, mad world of ours; a creative collective of as many poets, artists, and writers we can gather from around the world; from Nepal to Ireland, from England to China, from California to New York City and all the places in between. Our Poetry Forum features works from over 150 contributing poets, our Short Story Library has 140 writers and our Mad Gallery has 40 resident artists. This anthology is a great introduction to the world of Mad Swirl!”
To get the official launch kicked-off, we will be featuring these local & remote Contributing Poets & Writers:
Polly Richardson (Ireland)
Madelyn Olson (Austin)
Chigger Matthews (Missouri)
Tyler Malone (Colorado)
Mike Fiorito (NYC)
…and more? We shall see!
