Eleven show from Janet Kuypers

    Below are video links and poem text links from a June 11th 2018 (6/11/18, or 20180611) poetry performance (accompanied by guitar and piano music from John Yotko, accompanied by train sound throughout the show) of Janet Kuypers’ Austin poetry feature through “Fort to Famous” at Austin’s The Buzz Mill in Austin, TX.

    In this show, Janet Kuypers’ decided to tackle the number eleven in many different forms throughout her show, from her first poem she ever wrote that was published when she was eleven, the acquaintance rape counselor poems she wrote 11 years after that, to nearly being killed on July 11th, to having her first show back in Chicago on June 11th, top coping with July 11, 2001. At the end of this show (cut off from video, but in the chapbook), she even read a penguin poem written in the 11th month last year, and ended her show with a poem from poems written 11 years after being happily married to John… in this show, she even included a song they have sung in 11 states.

    Poems performed in thisshow include “Under the Sea”, “The Burning”, “Right There, By Your Heart (verses 2 & 6)”, “What We Need in Life”, “Fantastic Car Crash”, “The Things They Did To You (5/8/18 edit)”, “Looking for a Worthy Adversary (an extreme sestina variation)”, “Death is a Dog”, and “September 11, 2001”.

Janet Kuypers’ June 2022 Book reading 6/6/18 at Austin’s Community Poetry

Janet KuypersCommunity Poetry book readings

    June 6th marked the reading space where Janet Kuypers read material from new Scars Publications books for Community Poetry@Half Price Books, which was the only meeting like this at Half Price Books (5555 N Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX). June 6th also marked a June 2018 Book Release Reading of new books from Scars Publications, which saw the release of the cc&d June 2018 v284 6/18 25-year anniversary issue 6×9 ISBN# paperback book “Shining” and the June 2018 issue (v158) of Down in the Dirt magazine’s issue/book “The Painting”.
    Because issue collection books have also been recently released, Janet Kuypers also read (in two separate readings) material from the Scars Publications Down in the Dirt January-April 2018 issue collection book “At Midnight” for the final readings of the event. And as an added bonus to the final reading, Janet Kuypers also also finished by reading two poems from her (at the time) upcoming 6/11/18 poetry show titled “Eleven” (because it was a 6/11 show filled with references to the number eleven).

Janet Kuypers’ 1.5-hour radio interview 5/13/18 on the JohnMac Radio Show

Janet Kuypers on the radio

    the JohnMac Radio Show invited Janet Kuypers as a special guest for what became a 1½-hour-long radio show, when she dialed in for her interview from Austin Texas, where they talked not only about her childhood and her history of writing to her editing the literary magazines cc&d magazine and Down in the Dirt magazine), to her future plans.

    Because these were telephone interviews, Janet Kuypers was not in the the JohnMac Radio Show personally, but in her library. We have obtained video from two cameras of most of her interview — and because this was over the phone, these videos only contain Janet’s answers and comments that we on the air. To hear the entire show (including the host, Janet, and people who called in), go to the the JohnMac Radio Show link for the entire live radio broadcast, or to the Facebook events page complete with ads for the radio show and links to all of the videos and the full broadcast.
