Three Featured Writers then open mic:

Emily Nemens, is the Fall 2007 writer in residence at the Kerouac House. Always striving to bring visual arts, design, and literature together in a compelling way, she has written and illustrated a graphic novel about the 2004 Madrid train bombings (on-view at, edited a book for the Education department of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and an excerpt of her first novel, Blue-eyed Apples, was selected for The L Magazine's 2007 Literary Upstart Competition. She grew up in Seattle and graduated from Brown University in 2005. She now lives in Brooklyn , where she works as a writer, designer, painter, and occasional musician.

Calypso writes about everything she thinks of: men & women, drugs, music, history, religion, and myth. She attended Seminole Community College with the idea of majoring in Anthropology, when she realized she didn't enjoy research as much as conversation. After graduation plus two years of boredom, Calypso went to Rollins, and earned a Bachelor's in English, with a Writing Minor. She followed-up her education with workshops under the direction of Jaime Morris and the companionship of the Woodstream Writers. They helped her recall a bleary, but sunny morning spent at the Cornell Gallery where Art Blumenthal said, "you're a poet!" somewhat accidentally. Her favorite reads include Charles Bukowski, Mary Oliver, Rainer Maria Rilke, Raymond Carver, Leonard Cohen, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and the occasional Gerard Manley Hopkins. Calypso even flips through her used textbooks to survey the stuff she missed while a college student. She's shy almost everywhere but in her writing, and enjoys starlit walks on Ormond Beach.

John Connolley, grew up in West Virginia the oldest of nine children and received a B.S. in math at Marshall University. He spent four years in the Southwest as a radar mechanic in the Air Force, and fourteen years in New York City. In New York, he was the editor of the quarterly New York Skeptic and of the semi-monthly Street News, which was sold by the homeless to give them a source of income, and which helped many of them get off the street. He has revised two books for readability, both of which made the Business Best Seller list. They were The Education of a Speculator, by Victor Niederhoffer, and Contrarian Investment Strategies: the Next Generation, by David Dreman. Since then, he hasn't done squat except write a little poetry.
