I am incredibly proud of my newest project. Please take a look!
Have you ever been into a magical land where art, music, and poetry converge into one place? The place exists as the green salon in the home of Roy Shabla in the suburbs of Downey. On Saturday, June 27th, I will be joined by Raquel Reyes-Lopez and Kelsey Bryan-Zwick for a special performance of the journey into our poetic sisterhood. Because this is a private home, in order to find out more details, join the Facebook event page or email me at SarahThursday@gmail.com.
A little more about the big press and book launch a few weeks ago.
In September, long time contributor, Nancy Lynée Woo with myself, Sarah Thursday, set out to launch Lucid Moose Lit, a press focused on social justice issues, and an anthology called Gutters & Alleyways:Perspectives on Poverty and Struggle. In the months prior, we received hundred of submissions, a significant number of which were from our incredible Cadence Collective community of poets. You can find out more about the press and book at LucidMooseLit.com.
You can also watch this wonderful video on YouTube that highlights many of the Cadence contributors at the launch event on September 28th at St. Luke’s Church, including cameos by Fernando Gallegos, Don Kingfisher Campbell, Terry Wright, Clifton Snider, Daniel McGinn, and Raquel Reyes-Lopez. The anthology also includes work by Cadence Collective Poets K. Andrew Turner, G. Murray Thomas, JL Martindale, Graham Smith, Alejandro Duarte

On September 27th, 2014, The Long Beach Folk Revival Festival will be taking over the Rainbow Lagoon in downtown Long Beach. Our favorite indie bookstore, Gatsby Books, will have a booth across from the Mill Stage. My poetry partner in crime, Nancy Lynée Woo and I will be at the booth from 2-3 pm to represent all of our poetry projects: Cadence Collective, Sadie Girl Press, and Lucid Moose Lit. Come by and say hello!
I am so proud to have this collection ready for you all! Have a look and buy one for yourself.
After an entire year of daily poetry and three long months of selecting, editing, designing, and proofreading (no summer vacation for this teacher), Cadence Collective is proud to announce its Year One Anthology. We are releasing a beautiful, soft cover, printed-on-paper, actual book that includes over 100 poems by 57 Cadence poets who have been connected to the Long Beach community. Books will be available for only $15 at many fine independent bookstores in the Greater Long Beach Area and beyond, such as Gatsby Books (Long Beach), Read On Till Morning (San Pedro), and Half Off Books (Whittier). If you have an independent bookstore who you’d like to recommend to carry our anthology, please let us know at CadenceCollectiveLBP@gmail.com.
If you live nowhere near these fine places, you may purchase it through the Sadie Girl Press Bookstore or through Amazon. Please feel free to leave a review or comment on our
