Poetry Gossip: Click On Headlines The next Prose, Poetry and Pints at the Wild Pug, 4810 N. Broadway, will be on Thursday, December 10, with 7:30 PM open mic sign up and 8 PM readings. This queer-focused, straight friendly venue will feature Deviant Dyke DeDe Deylnn and Graeme Schellenberger and will be hosted by Tavern Boy Craig Rathwell and author Drew Ferguson.

According to our official intern, there will be a Elbowing off the Stage event on Monday, December 14, 7 PM, at Manhattan's, 415 S. Dearborn St, featuring Brandi Homan, Liz Hildreth, and Sarah Carson.

And on Thursday, December 17, at 7 PM, The Book Cellar, 4836 N Lincoln, will present Daniel Nester reading from How To Be Inappropriate.

According to a Columbia College Yahoo Alert, the next Rockbox Poetry Jam will take place on Monday, December 7, at 2624 N. Lincoln Ave. The event will feature John-Franklin Dandridge and Matt Anderson with a "mystery" guest and will also have an open mic. Curated by Narciso Lobo and Joe Bly, the Rockbox series incorporates the poetry of past and present in an informal conversational setting. They ask the poets to read their own work along with work that gives them inspiration, in order to "keep us grounded in the resounding enjoyment of all poetry and enlighten us with the forthcoming work of our peers." The listing claims the events starts at 9:30 PM and ends at 4 AM, but somehow I doubt it actually goes on for six and a half hours, right? So get there early.

According to our official intern, there will be a Elbowing off the Stage event on Monday, December 14, 7 PM, at Manhattan's, 415 S. Dearborn St, featuring Brandi Homan, Liz Hildreth, and Sarah Carson.

And Pedestal Magazine is looking for slam style poetry tracks for its 9 year anniversary issue. Specifically, they are looking for "poetry with music, spoken word tracks, straight up slam, or any related form of poetry that is intended to be heard out loud." They will pay you $10 per track and previously published stuff is okay. All tracks, along with a photo and 100 word bio, should be sent in MP3 form by December 15 to zgkluckman (at) msn (dot) com.

Hey young poets, if you are interested in registering for the 10th Annual Louder Than A Bomb, click here. The deadline is December 11.

On Saturday, December 12, 7 to 10 PM, "The League" returns with "A Poetic Concert" at Sonoma Cafe, 2847 W. 95th Street, Evergreen Park. Admission is donation of canned goods or toys for needy children.

Word is that there will be a free "Family Album" poetry reading at Woman Made Gallery, 685 N. Milwaukee Ave, on Sunday, December 13 from 2 to 4 PM, curated by Nina Corwin, Toni Asante Lightfoot and Shelly Nation, with poets from Young Chicago Authors and Alice George, Carol Kanter, Gregg Shapiro and Donna Vorreyer. .

And then on Saturday, December 19, from 7:30 to 9:30 PM, Women & Children First Bookstore, 5233 N. Clark St, presents Sappho's Solstice Salon (for lesbians and their friends), a benefit for Clara’s House (a 22-year old shelter for homeless and battered women in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood, that recently lost its funding and is struggling to stay open); the benefit features C.C. Carter, the POW-WOW Finer Figure Performance Ensemble and DJ SpinNikki. $7-10 sliding scale includes food and wine.

Those of you who regularly attend the Rhino Workshops in Evanston probably know Josephine (Jo) Stewart. She is the author of the new chapbook Where The Turtle Lives and her work has also appeared in Poetry Cram. A while back, the ChicagoPoetry.com email list encouraged poets to submit work for the "Poetry That Moves Contest" in which winners would have their work published on public transportation in the suburbs. And now we can report a congratulations to Jo Stewart, whose poem "In Season" was selected as one of the winners.

"Eve Sedgwick lovingly, if none too gently, slapped open the sphincter-tight boundary rings of critical scholarship on the sexual and affective relations between bodies." On February 25 and 26, The City University of New York will be hosting "Spanking and Poetry": A Conference on Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick. Interested? Submit abstracts of 300 words or less to sedgwickconference@gmail.com by January 1, 2010.

Join the POW-WOW open mic at Jeffrey Pub, 7041 S. Jeffrey, every Tuesday at 8:30 PM. On December 8 bring scarves, hats, toiletries for their Griot Drive to support seniors at the Jackson Senior Citizens Home. On December 15 attend their 6th Annual Holiday Explosion. On December 22 enjoy a sing along and a Sexy Season Dance number. On December 29 it's a Kwanzaa New Years Celebration with a New Year's Resolution open mic. And on Janaury 5 celebrate the beginning of the year Latina style.

Psssst (that's the sound of someone spreading gossip). Chicago poet Emily Rose is in the process of developing a workshop on writing erotic poetry and she wants your help. She is looking for erotic poems of the highest quality (not dirty poems, think e. e. cummings or Neruda). She would like you to send her some poems (either your own or stuff you like from other writers) to emilyroseks (at) gmail (dot) com. Shhh.
