Ben Aleshire to Guest at SpokenWord Paris July 17th—Monday’s Theme: Strange/Strangers

Aleshire_photoBenjamin Aleshire is based in New Orleans, and travels the world as a poet-for-hire, composing poems for strangers on a manual typewriter. His work is forthcoming in Iowa Review and Boston Review, and he was recently featured in El Mundo, in Spain, and on SinoVision TV, in China. This summer during a residency at the Künstlerhaus Vorwerk-Stift in Hamburg, he created an artist-book of visual poems, ‘Currency’, from rags picked in the St. Pauli market. You can commission him every afternoon in front of Shakespeare & Co.
