Adam Meora is the director of poetic arts performance project, a multi-venue, non profit that runs poetic events, including the only ongoing symposium series for poets in Philly. He has been featured at the Tin Angel, The Rotunda, the Philadelphia Free Library and many other venues. He has been a member of the poeticpolitical group Arsenic Pizza as well the poetic performance group the Unfuckwittables. He has been published but does not enjoy sitting still long enough to decipher which poems will be neatly packaged, even for his avant garde fantasy mags...so instead he has decided to let them collect in his email inbox. If you want to see him after this reading...look on you tube...his ninth grade students made fun of him for a week about one of his readings.
