Carve out a spot in your busy calendars for Friday, June 26, 3-4 p.m. That’s when three of our LeipGlo columnists – Stewart Tunnicliff, Maeshelle West-Davies, and Christijan Robert Broerse – will give a literature show full of surprises at Leipzig’s first KUK! Festival. Organized by HTWK, the festival features an array of other attractions as well, from live folk and orchestra music to a science slam and after-show party.
What are you doing this Friday, May 15? Will you be in Leipzig? If you feel up to it, come ’round to Uptown Coffee Bar, Riemannstr. 44 (by Flowerpower off Karl Liebknecht Str.), at 5 p.m. Two of my fellow columnists – Stewart Tunnicliff (#MoviesAndTV) and Christijan Robert Broerse (#Literature) – and I will be reading stories and poetry there. The main thread is a special place in each of our respective lives that’s been left but not left behind, because it’s still very present in our minds and creative musings.
Happy Labor Day! Today, on the 2-month anniversary of The Leipzig Glocal, I am proud to announce that we’re ready to take the next step on our Web publishing journey. I say “we” because this can only be done with the help of the people who will be contributing their talent to this blog on a regular basis, as of now. On Monday, May 4, we are turning the blog into a “webzine” – meaning more like an online-based magazine than a traditional blog.
