This is a general admission event in The Gallery at LPR.
The Inspired Word presents a hot night of sexy fun, lip-licking words, and utter debauchery – Titillating Tongues: NYC Erotica in Poetry & Prose, featuring our 20-slot open mic (6 minutes each) open to all types of artists, where you can bring your own heat to the party. Hosted by the fiery redheaded poet Aimee Herman and in the elegantly sexy Gallery at LPR (Le Poisson Rouge).
Aimee Herman is a Pushcart Prize nominated performance artist, poet and teacher with an MFA in Creative Writing from Long Island University in Brooklyn, as well as a longtime Inspired Word host. She teaches at Bronx Community College and is a faculty member with Poetry Teachers NYC, offering affordable poetry workshops and creating spaces for other performers to lift their words off the page. She has been published in various journals and anthologies such as:Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics (Nightboat Books) and The Understanding Between Foxes and Light (great weather for MEDIA). Her full-length book of poems to go without blinking was published in 2012 by BlazeVOX books. She can be found wrapped in caution tape in Brooklyn or @ aimeeherman.wordpress.com.
