Wednesday, January 19 - Andy Devine, Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez, Lola Pierson, Heather Rounds

A new year. A new WORMS. Watch Andy Devine, Lesser Gonzalez Alvarez, Lola Pierson, and Heather Rounds put the past behind them on January 19 at the Bell Foundry.

ANDY DEVINE ’s WORDS (Publishing Genius, 2010) has been called “amazing,” “genius,” and “a joy to experience.” And one critic noted that, “Devine has dismantled the English language.” Devine’s alphabetical fictions and essays have appeared in a variety of literary magazines, including New York Tyrant, Unsaid, elimae, Everyday Genius, and Taint. In 2002, Devine was awarded the Riddley Walker Prize (for a work that ignores conventional rules of grammar and punctuation). In 2007, he published his first chapbook, “As Day Same That the the Was Year” (Publishing Genius). In 2009, Devine was awarded The Ivory-Billed Woodpecker Award (for fiction in the face of adversity). Andy Devine Avenue — in Flagstaff, Arizona — is named after him.


LOLA PIERSON is a MFA candidate at Towson University. She is a founding member of The Un Saddest Factory, a Baltimore based DIY theatre company, and lives at the Bell Foundry. She won third place in the Baltimore Citypaper's fiction contest this year and is the author of many hit plays.

HEATHER ROUNDS lives, writes, collaborates, etc. in Baltimore.
