Epic Rites Press represents poetry that is raw, honest, and stripped down to its barest essence. Our mandate is a simple one: the right word next to the right word; the right line next to the right line—connection through common experiences and common language. Our writing and performances represent poetry as it was meant to be experienced—urgent and pared down like a 911 call. Please join Wolfgang Carstens from Alberta, Canada, William Taylor Jr. from San Francisco, California, and Todd Cirillo from New Orleans, Louisiana for an evening of poetry from the infamous Epic Rites Press.
