Hosted by Fred Joiner, curator and host of the American Poetry Museum's Intersections at the Honfleur Gallery and poet-in-residence at Busboys and Poets, Shirlington.

In August of 2000, Christopher K.P. Brown self-published his own collection of poems, Content, and sold over 200 copies at $20 a piece. He was only 16 years old. Since then he's written two more books of poetry and recorded four spoken word albums, POETRY: a hip hop album being the latest. He's currently working to establish his company, 2 Pens & Lint, as a well known and respected company that concentrates on building poetry as an industry in which poets are able to become financially stable through their art. When he created 2 Pens & Lint simply as a website back in 2003, Christopher was only 18 years old. Since then he's studied the poetry industry; he's had successes and failures in poetry; but most importantly he feels that he's still young enough to live up to the 2 Pens & Lint motto of moving towards "A New Direction In Poetry".
HOME is on every THIRD Friday of the month at Hillyer Art Space.
