Poetry Feature: Clive Matson: Clive began his career as a poet among the Beats in 1960s Greenwich Village. He was mentored and influenced by Allen Ginsberg, John Wieners, Diane di Prima and Herbert Huncke. He is the author of 9 volumes of poetry and the creative writing text "Let The Crazy Child Write!" and has been a creative writing teacher for 30 years. He frequently performs his works in Bay Area reading venues and will perform excerpts from his newest poem, "Hello Paradise, Paradise Good-bye". The long poem was premiered last year in Paris, France, the city of Climate Accord, and treats the topic of modern day threats of extinction and civil unrest.
Clive is the recipient of the Berkeley Lifetime Achievement in Poetry Award in 2012, was named the Best East Bay Writing Teacher in 2006 and received a PEN Oakland Josephine Miles National Award in 2003. To learn more, visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clive_Matson and http://matsonpoet.com/.

Poetry Feature: Clara Hsu: Clara practices the art of multi-dimensional being: mother, musician, purveyor of Clarion Music Performing Arts Center, traveler, translator and poet. A nominee for the Pushcart Prize in poetry (2001), she has published several books, including her translation of the Tao-te Ching. While translating the Tao, the passages prompted responses, memories, and philosophical thoughts which Clara Hsu incorporated in her translation, and which she calls her "infusions".
Clara Hsu read from the Tao, and her other work, along with an open mic.
