Dear friends of phren-Z:

This month's issue is a little later than usual, as we are partnering with the In Celebration of the Muse reading to be held at Center Stage on Saturday, March 26, at 7:00 pm. Because we'll be officially into Spring by then, we've leaped forward and are calling this the Spring 2016 issue. The work of all 18 Muse readers is now available online. So come listen to the Muses share their work, then rush home to read again what they had to say.

Here's the line-up for the In Celebration of the Muse readings:

 
Brianna Barreto Donna Becker Deborah Bryant Ruth Elliott
Susan Freeman Patricia Grube
Diane Dobrin Grunes Geneffa Popatia Jonker
Sylvia Patience Jennifer Pittman
Bernice Rendrick Dena Taylor
Louise Thornton Patrice Vecchione Renee Winter J. Zimmerman
Rosie King to honor
Tilly Shaw
Tilly Shaw Joan Safajek

Barbara Bloom to
honor Joan Safajek

 

 

Wilma Marcus is a playwright, poet and theatre director, emeritus chair of Theatre Arts at Cabrillo College and Artistic Director of the 8Tens@8 Festival. Along with Diane Grunes, Donna Zavada and Donna Gorman she founded The National Festival of Women’s Theatre in 1982 which was based in Santa Cruz and which presented, over several years, 90 women’s theatre and poetry events. The Muse began as part of this festival and has gone on as a local treasure.

 
Spring 2016 Issue Featured Artist: Alison Parham
  Alison Parham grew up in the Santa Cruz mountains and raised a family in Bonny Doon with her husband. She began painting in 1999 when a friend asked her if she wanted to take a watercolor class and she's been painting ever since. She's inspired to paint a variety of subjects and likes to include those little perfections that are present in everything around us because it makes the painting more real. Check out Alison's work at her web site.
