XWA-eXperimental Writer Asylum-Decatur Book Fest August 30, 2013
10:00PM - 12:00AM
Price:  free
This event occurs at the Seen Gallery, 415 Church St., Decatur, 30030.

XWA 4 opens with a first-ever mix of two regular Eyedrum forums open to (almost) everyone, Writers Exchange (aka WrEx) and Open Improv. This event will alternate between readings of erotica and ad hoc acoustic performances of bawdy songs, so the event is suggested for adults only. Participants should bring unamped instruments, singing voices, and smutty ideas.

12:00PM - 10:00PM
Price:  free
These events occur at the Seen Gallery, 415 Church St., Decatur, 30030.

3–4 pm: Allison Rentz and publisher Nisa Asokan present a workshop on the artist book putAtoring.

4–5 pm: Children’s book creator Jacquitta McManus, artist/set designer James Eugene, and author/filmmaker Balogun discuss race and representation in such mediums as comics and cinema.

7-10 pm: Reception for XWA participants and all others; this party will overlap with the art|DBF street festival occurring across Church Street on and around the Decatur MARTA plaza.

Throughout the Saturday and Sunday daylight hours of XWA 4, passersby can again enjoy the free verse stylings (and, often, the free-verse stylings) of Jimmy Lo and company with Free Poems on Demand outside the gallery. Also on hand will be Nisa Asokan of Fifth Planet Press, overseeing a showcase of indy publishers’ recent books.
