Come celebrate the publication of Matthew Johnstone's Eater, of Mouths courtesy of Milwaukee's own Vegetarian Alcoholic Press!

featuring...

Matthew Johnstone is the author of the collection 'Let's be close  Rope to mast  you, Old light' (Blue & Yellow Dog, 2010), and the chapbooks 'o n e' (Inpatient Press), 'Note on Tundra' (DoubleCross Press), '( Kiln )' (above/ground press, forthcoming), and 'Eater, of mouths' (Vegetarian Alcoholic Press, 2017). He co-edits the online journal 'Pider,' and hosts the Et Al. Poetry Readings, both of Nashville, Tennessee.

Annie Grizzle is a multimedia artist interested in the nonsensical intersection between the mappable and the abstract. Her aim is not to control a medium, but to create a disorienting space in which to discover and test its limits. More of her work can be found on her website.

Nathan Fredrick is the pen name of Freddy La Force, publisher and editor at Vegetarian Alcoholic. He has produced 11 books for the label since 2014, including two containing his own words, Parallelograms (with Heidi Koos, 2014) and Fall Catalogue (2016). He most recently edited an anthology of 47 Milwaukee poets, Return to the Gathering Place of the Waters.
