101 Artists' Colony and Full Moon Poets is proud to host the premiere of Gary Mex Glazner's first film; Busload of Poets. The film highlights the conversion of driver Paul Cavendish from retired trucker to poetry aficionado. This wild concert footage captures the 32-city, in 30-day spoken word tour, from the summer of 2000. Paul began spontaneously speaking in Haiku halfway through the 8000-mile tour. Glazner will give a short reading before the film and answer questions about the making of the film afterwards.
by Gary Mex Glazner (, 2005), is a book that all poets — andindeed all creative writers — would do well to study, digest, and ultimatelyuse to help build a career.
Gary Mex Glazner makes his living as a poet. Denise Kusel, of The Santa Fe New Mexican says, "Poet Gary Mex Glazner belies a mild-manner with an inyourface delivery. He shouts. He postures. He's a madman, insisting you get it -all of it. Because he holds nothing back he's insightful and dangerous, as only a good poet can be." Glazner is the curator of Word Art: Poetry Broadside Series at the Palace of Governor's Museum in Santa Fe. La Alameda Press published his first book Ears on Fire: Snapshot Essays in a World of Poets last summer.
One of Leech’s defining projects is The Word Art Poetry Broadside Series, created with editor Gary Mex Glazner, featuring prominent American poets. For the series, Leech chose poems that spoke to him, deeply exploring them for months through layout, handmade paper, typography, dyeing, marbling, linoleum block printing—all in a dance of subtlety. Leech’s work is experienced subliminally, revealed on closer look. As Leech says, “Type is as much about what you don’t see as what as what you do see - it should not call attention to itself, but be subservient to the text.”
