Word of Mouth Cincinnati (WoMC), a literary event consisting of both an Open Mic and a Feature Performance, runs the last Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. upstairs at MOTR Pub.
Word of Mouth Cincinnati, which began in January 2014, is co-hosted by fellow writers Jim Palmarini and Mark Flanigan. It was founded in memory of the late Aralee Strange who, after many years living, writing and producing work in the Cincinnati area, moved to Athens, Georgia where she co-founded Athens Word of Mouth.
Our feature on August 29, 2017 is Robin LaMer Rahija (Lexington, KY).
Robin LaMer Rahija is originally from Kansas City, MO. She did her MFA in Poetry at the University of Kentucky, and in 2010 she started Rabbit Catastrophe Press, which publishes hand-bound and hand-printed fine art edition books. Her work has appeared in Diagram, PANK, Washington Square Review, and elsewhere.
WoMC is an intentional arc of both past and future utterance, inspired by our most revered voice, with a nod to her Athens, GA compatriots. Word of Mouth asks poets to Show Up, Mouth Off and Pay Attention.
