**UPDATE!** Change in venue! Hodgepodge had a power outage so we're taking our shenanigans to Mother! 447 Edgewood Ave. See you there! Same time – different place.

Poets and Timeless, Infinite Light cofounders Emji Spero and Joel Gregory are touring the south with The Sleeping Together Tour. I’m so pumped to be hosting their ATL reading, where they’ll be joined by Devan Goldstein, who recently moved to Georgia from PGH, and local literary champ Caroline Cox.

Timeless, Infinite Light (http://timelessinfinitelight.com/) is an Oakland-based small press that publishes contemporary writing with a tendency toward the experimental, radical, and mystical. Committed to promoting critical poetic work by emerging and established writers, and T.I.L. prioritizes authors whose identities are often excluded from the literary mainstream. They believe in the radical potential of collaborative, hybrid, and embodied writing, and promote work that resists structures of oppression, both in form and content. This preference for challenging work extends to the design and structure of the books they produce.

Emji Spero is an Oakland-­based artist exploring the intersections of writing, book art, installation and performance. They are a co-founder of Timeless, Infinite Light, Material Print Machine, and Omni Commons. Their book, almost any shit will do, uses found language, word-replacement and erasure to strange the familiar and and map the boundaries of collective engagement. Spero is currently working on Exhaustion, a dry lyric essay that documents the affective weight of accumulated sub-threshold violences.

Joel Gregory is a poet and visual artist living in Oakland, California. He is a dropout of the Evergreen State College and the New School. He is a co­-founder at Timeless, Infinite Light. His poetry can be found in Boog City, 580 Split, and Open House, and his visual art can be found on Instagram @niteselfie. He is currently working on Connection, a voyeristic book-length manuscript, in which he collages language from Craigslist missed connections into poems and reposts them in search of the absent object of desire.

Devan Goldstein’s creative work has appeared in PANK, The Collagist, Hobart, and elsewhere. His other credits include A List Apart, UXMag and The Motley Fool. He works as a content strategist for NerdWallet and lives in Middle Georgia with his wife and two kids.

Caroline Cox is the associate editor for four print magazines in Atlanta, Ga. and co-editor-in-chief of the arts website CommonCreativATL. Her work has appeared on The Daily Beast, Nylon, BuzzFeed, The Guardian, xoJane, The Billfold, Scoutmob and more. Follow her on Twitter at @carolinecox because she's got jokes and because "Roses" by OutKast is about her.
