Celebrate the launch of “I Am Not Famous Anymore: Poems after Shia LaBeouf”, Erin Dorney’s debut collection!

Presented by Mason Jar Press
Hosted by Jaime Fountaine
Readings by Jim Warner, Gina Myers, and Erin Dorney

Available now from Mason Jar Press, Erin Dorney’s debut is a collection of erasure poems sourced from media interviews with Shia LaBeouf. Erasure is a form of poetry created by erasing words from an existing text and framing the result on the page as a poem. The poems in “I Am Not Famous Anymore” are sourced from interviews published in Rolling Stone, Dazed, GQ, The Guardian, The New York Times, Playboy, and Cosmo Girl, among other publications.

This evening's host, Jaime Fountaine, was raised by «wolves.» She lives in Philadelphia, where she co-hosts the Tire Fire reading series at Tattooed Mom, and Excuse My Dust, a “weirdo literature variety hour” at the Good Good Comedy Theater.

Jim Warner’s work has appeared in various journals including The North American Review, RHINO, New South, and was a 2018 best small fiction finalist. His third collection of poetry Actual Miles was released in 2018 by Sundress Publications. Jim is the host of the literary podcast Citizen Lit and is a faculty member of Arcadia University’s MFA program.

Gina Myers is the author of two full-length poetry collections, A Model Year (2009) and Hold It Down (2013), as well as several chapbooks, including most recently Philadelphia (Barrelhouse, 2017). In addition to poetry, she has published numerous essays, reviews, and articles for a variety of publications, including Hyperallergic, Frontier Psychiatrist, Fanzine, The Rumpus, and The Poetry Project Newsletter, among other places. Originally from Saginaw, MI, she now lives in Philadelphia, PA, where she works as a web content writer and social media specialist, co-edits the tiny with Gabriella Torres, and runs the Accidental Player reading series.
