My Old Book Now Newly Published!

Yall, I thought I had lost all digital copies of my old book, The South is Still Rising: Radical and Anarchist Movements in Richmond, VA from 1994-2004. The independent, IWW union print shop I used to publish the first 2 editions is out of business. Thanks to extra time during this quarantine, I have been able to find it!! And the cover artwork my friend Will Gowdy designed for me! So now my book is available on amazon as a paperback and kindle as an ebook. I am not loving amazon, but I do not have another way I can afford to get my book out there into the world at this time. There are hard copies of this and my newer haiku book at Small Friend Books and Records and Chop Suey Books two local Richmond book stores I love.

The South is Still Rising Book

This book was something I researched and wrote as my Div 3 at Hampshire College – basically a senior thesis if you will. It has info on food not bombs, civil rights, critical mass, queer liberation, earth liberation, anti war and other movements in Richmond. Please review and rate if you have read it, and consider buying to help me out if you can

Southern Gothic Futurism Haiku Battle Championship November 23rd in CVille

Ya boi made the championships!!! I have been losing a TON lately at the haiku slams. But maybe I can pull some tricks and win this mega championship and the prize $$$$ arooooo!

November 23rd, 8pm, Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar in Cville. All the mega, epic haiku battling bests from Virginia will be there. Come pay homage and witness the brutality of cousins fighting it out 17 syllables at a time.

FYI Raven changed the champion title from Chief to Champ, which he explains in a post on the facebook event page which you can find here:

Scope my Patreon dudes

Daily haiku are now posted on my Patreon page cause I need money to pay bills yall!

Consider a $5 a month level where you get access to all of my patreon posts. It would make a big difference to my budget.

10 people at $5 a month would allow me to pay off medical debt my family has incurred a little bit each month.

I am updating the posts this weekend with days I have missed, cause online posting can be harder to do than writing on paper for me. But I am taking my paper poems and digitizing them!

Http://www.patreon.com/mokarnage

I post free things all the time, participate in community events, and do my best to share freely with the world. Lets be real, poetry is not glorified much in our culture. I can’t make a living slinging my poems. In fact I work full time for a construction non profit to try to pay all my bills. Which leaves me minimal free time. I spend a good bit of my free time creating, with words, herbs, food, and found items.

If this inspires you to share $5+ bucks a month with me, my efforts will be that much more sustainable.

There will be more benefits added along the way;; so join now and stay tuned!!

Need Haiku Competitors

Folks – I need to find a minimum of 4 competitors for this upcoming Haiku event in Richmond. I need 4+ people to commit to coming out, bringing 20-30 pre-written haiku (simply a three line poem, lines containing 5-7-5 syllables) and competing. Who is gonna help me out this next event?? May 17th at 8pm at 123 E. main st. Rva aka Electric Nomad Dance Studio. Possible prizes. Your Haiku can be about anything. Also, if you are interested in sponsoring these events, so we can pay the poets and give them prizes, please hit me up. I am not the main organizer of this event but I love the shit out of it and I am competing against Raven Mack in the Life Match, so I am trying to help. This Southern Gothic Futurism haiku thing brings together people to create a community of cousins, it celebrates storytelling, the south, weirdos and queerdos and all in between. It is legit fun and some of the best laughing I do each month (the event goes down in Cville and Rva check it out) email me at mokarnage@gmail.com for info or to commit

Electric Nomad Dance- New Studio at 123 E Main Street! Spring Signup!

Hey Yall

If you follow my social media you may have seen that I helped my friend Twila Jane a few weeks ago get started installing flooring at her new dance studio at 123 E. Main St.

I am so excited about their new space. I actually am going to have the opportunity to sell my herbal and craft products there in a mini punkothecary, and may even teach some classes. Other amazing people such as LeVar Carter, Owl Rare, and Laura Rettinger may teach Yoga and other classes in the space. And my friend Raven Mack aka Dirt God is going to try the space out as a venue for Haiku Battles in Richmond. This is such a collaboration of great people and has so much potential. Please support the space, as all of us artists an d crafters and teachers and healers have big hearts and smol smol budgets.  This is Twila’s space, please sign up for their classes and for other classes in the space. Richmond is what we make of it, and here is a chance to make something pretty great!!!

From my friend Twila on Facebook:

Twila Jane is at Electric Nomad Dance.

Hey ya’ll! Lots of folks have asked how they can support the new studio space, and this is one of the best: sign up for or share our classes! 💖💖💖 New sessions begin in just under two weeks, and these first few months will be super important for us to have a solid registration. If you and yours don’t want to dance, but support our work, please consider purchasing a session for someone who receives a scholarship from us! 🤓 💃💖 We are also offering a discount for college students as well, so bring your ID for a reduced class fee. Beginner classes are Tues, Wed, and Thurs 6:30-7:30, and an open level class at 7:30 pm on Thursdays. Next week we have off and I’m gonna be working on improving the space even more. See you there?? Please share! Registration is up at www.electricnomad.net/signup
