Meet Audrey Dimola
John Rice here, blogging in preparation of hosting for this month’s edition (4/20/13) of the Oh, Bernice! Reading Series. As a way to best get to know the readers, I asked them all the same question.
Tell me about the last time you were cruel.
Audrey: In my dreams I often wind up as a town-smashing dragon - pretty cruel to all those dream-townspeople. As penance, in my waking life I save spiders instead of smooshing them. YOU’RE WELCOME.
We’re welcome, indeed.
Audrey Dimola is a journalist, editor, poet, and arts event curator born in Astoria/Long Island City, Queens where she (proudly!) still lives. She has performed at Bowery Poetry Club, Brooklyn Museum, and the NY Aquarium, and her articles, poetry/prose, and photos have been published in print and online. Audrey is the author of “Decisions We Make While We Dream,” an original collection of work spanning 2000 to 2012, and in 2013 she founded “Nature of the Muse,” a Queens literary series playing with themes of inspiration and on-the-spot creation. She loves to explore and lives by these words: stay wild, stay grateful. http://audreydimola.com/
And, if you really want to get to know Audrey, you should check out the entry she wrote about her reading series for the Newtown Literary blog http://newtownliterary.org/2013/03/28/discover-nature-of-the-muse-in-lic/ which focuses on the idea of live, improvisational writing.
