Joshua Mohr read from Damascus about a bad drunken tattoo job and a boa constrictor named Bowie. Alvin Orloff contributed the scene from Why Aren't You Smiling? where the reader first encounters the charmingly ecumenical Pastor Rick. Maw Shein Win delivered new poems written on the plane back from Hawaii, including one of her rare love poems. Terry Sue Harms read from Pearls My Mother Wore, about a woman and her bad boy nephew healing each other. Zarina Zabrisky spun the devilish tale of an Italian man in San Diego and Tijuana.

(Liz Henry and Nora Boxer both had to cancel at the last minute.)
