Join us for the first ever Tattooed Mom curated Celebration of World Poetry Day!
For this event, we hand picked a few of our favorite local poets and asked that they each pick a poet whose work inspired them, whose words they wanted to lift up, and whose poetry deserves recognition. The resulting line-up is an astonishing & diverse group of voices, all converging at Tattooed Mom on March 21st, celebrating the internationally recognized World Poetry Day.

South Philadelphia residents Alexander Schneider and Christina Rosso-Schneider are opening A Novel Idea, an independent bookstore in East Passyunk, this winter.
A Novel Idea will feature both new and used books, as well as offer a variety of events. The goal is that it will become a place known for great books, merchandise, and events, but also a space where community is fostered. Alexander and Christina are kicking things off with a fundraiser & reading event at Tattooed Mom!
Any contributions or donations are greatly appreciated–whether they be gently used books, monetary donations, or purchases at the event.
Admission is free.
This event is 21+

Mad House Magazine presents a melodious showcase of poetic artistry in anticipation of Mad House Vol 4: REVOLT!
Gathered beautifully as it pupates from frantic emailing to layout stages, they will be selling preorders of the issue in order to have enough capitalist labor coupons to print copies in gorgeous full-color for everyone who wants one (& hopefully a few extra for people of the future who don’t know it exists yet).
Enjoy the perceptive, ungovernable work of these  poets:
Help us out by dropping in $10 for your copy and you’ll have our love and we’ll have a magazine waiting for you on reading night ♥
+Plus+ get a free copy of A SLENDER VOLUME little anthology zine! 🙂
