This show, an annual collaboration with California State Parks called Poetry in Parks, will be a free show, part of a day-long festival in the Candlestick Point State Recreation Area. The first 200 people will receive a book featuring all of the selected writing and cover art by a local artist! All authors will be paid and will read/perform as a literary mixtape, with no introductions or banter. Curated by Kelsey Schimmelman, Lisa Church, and Evan Karp
For the third year, California State Parks teams up with Quiet Lightning for Poetry in Parks, a free, daylong, all-ages arts festival featuring QL’s signature submission-based literary mixtape and annual Neighborhood Heroes show, with live music, modern dance, interactive painting, kids’ activities, food vendors and adult beverages.
