October is all about CSULB, baby! This month we have two Cal State Long Beach poets, Zachary Locklin and Eric Morago. Come out to Fox Coffeehouse on Monday, October 12th at 7 pm. Bring your own poems to read on the open reading list, with sign ups starting at 6:45.

He teaches creative writing, composition, and literature at California State University, Long Beach.
Eric Morago is a Pushcart Prize nominated poet who believes performance carries as much weight on the page, as it does off.

Currently he teaches for Red Hen Press’s Writing in the Schools Program, is an associate reviewer for Poetix, and serves as a poetry editor for FreezeRay.
