Curt Stubbs Poet- SPIRIT BRIDGES

SPIRIT BRIDGES

by Curt Stubbs

We are queers and lesbians,
bulldykes and flaming faggot firebearers,
Fairy kings and fairy queens,
cross dressers and bridges to the spirit world.
To the Ogalala Sioux we were winkte,
boy and girl twins born in the same body,
and we were sacred.
To the Lakota
we were adi-wa-lona
and we were sacred.
To the Pomo tribe
we were das,
to the Mojave
we were alyha and hwami,
to the Navajo
we were nadle
and we were always sacred.
The Zuni called us Ko’thlama
the Chippewa, a-go-kwa,
the Kokiak,ke’yev.
To all tribal people
we were accepted as spirit bridges.
In Tahiti we were called mahu
and cock sucking was our sacred duty
especially before a battle.
The Chinese spinsters who cross dressed
wore their hair short
and acted masculine were forced to work
in factories spinning and weaving silk,
a most holy task in old China.
They were considered to be lesbians
by the village people.
Faggots were mythologized as those
who brought fire to man.
Could Prometheus have been the first faggot?
In secular western culture
we are the writers, directors, producers and actors
who bring magic to stage, screen and television.
We are the hairdressers
who make women beautiful for men.
This stage magic and cross-
beautification of the sexes are
the modern equivalent
of crossing the spirit bridges.
We queers and dykes
are poets, novelists, musicians, artist and priests.
We bridge the spirit world of the arts.
Not all queers and dykes
bridge the spirit world
just as not all basketball players
play in the NBA.
There are different levels of existence after all,
but queers and dykes
have always filled a large niche
and we are sacred.

Abingdon Theatre Company- UPCOMING READINGS AT ABINGDON

Abingdon Theatre Company- UPCOMING READINGS AT ABINGDON

First Readings:

BLUE PERIOD by Charles Borkhuis
Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 2pm
Directed by Jackob Hofman
Arriving in Paris in 1900, two young Spanish painters take to the dazzling bohemian streets of Montmartre to seek fame and fortune, but they soon find themselves broke and disillusioned. Through an entanglement with a provocative French model, Picasso and Casagemas begin a sordid journey through the corridors of a dark tragedy that will lead to Picasso’s macabre “Blue Period” and mark him for the rest of his life.

AT DAYBREAK by Caroline Prugh
Monday, October 22, 2012 at 7pm
Directed by Christine Henry
A musical play about navigating a life driven by artistic expression. It’s the story of singer/songwriter Renee told in two interwoven journeys: her college years in the mid-1990s and thirteen critical days in April 2004; exploring the combined effect of her romantic relationships with boyfriends Kyle and Dave and her friendship with never-changing Margo on her evolving understanding of life, love and music.

PRAIRIE COTEAU by Liam Mitchell
Monday, November 5, 2012 at 7pm
Directed by Austin Pendleton
The hardships of settlers in the relentless Dakota Territory in the late 1800’s is dramatized through its’ impact on five characters. Their relationships, failures and expectations are played out in the context of the harsh life that they are forced to endure.

ALL ROADS HOME by Jen Silverman
Thursday, November 8, 2012 at 2pm
Directed by Adam Greenfield
Madeleine wanted to be a dancer, her daughter Max wanted to be a cowboy, and Max’s daughter, Nix, has no idea what she wants, but knows it has to be enough for all of them. Set in the 50’s, 70’s and today, three women choose which dreams to sacrifice and when to keep fighting. All the Roads Home is about freedom, family, and finding hope where you least expect it.

Staged Readings:

THE TENTH SON by Rob Winn Anderson (Winner of the Christopher Brian Wolk Award)
Monday, December 10, 2012 at 7pm
Directed by Jules Ochoa
In the summer of 1722, the heat pales in comparison to the turbulent relationship 16-year old Benjamin Franklin has with his older brother, James, and the intense passion he has found in the arms of an older, Mary Beekman. When James attempts to restrain what he considers Ben’s growing arrogance, Ben, with Mary’s help, challenges him. Ben becomes embroiled in a battle of medicine, religion and political manipulations. He stealthily maneuvers his way onto the pages of James’ newspaper, The New England Courant, stands toe-to-toe with an influential Puritan minister and must outwit two men determined to control, not only the paper, but Boston itself.

WORLD OF SINATRAS HOME Sinatras Home by Sean O’Connor
Monday, December 17 at 7pm
Directed by Rob Urbinati
Suburbia, 1960s. Jack, a Sinatra obsessed psychiatrist, can’t escape the alcohol and rage of his past. Sammie, who idolizes his father, has to protect his French mother from Jack’s rages till his relationship with Jack becomes an all out war. Jack leaves for another woman. Sammie, a star student athlete, becomes engulfed by alcohol, drugs and rage. A hard resolution is earned in this tender, volatile, and deeply human play.

Sydney Writers’ Centre- Travel Writing with Sue White & Many More Writing Courses

Sydney Writers’ Centre- Travel Writing with Sue White & Many More Writing Courses

Imagine landing in an exciting destination – New York, Spain, Prague, take your pick – and experiencing sights and sounds you once only dreamt of. Imagine staying in beautiful hotels, sampling the cuisine and browsing in hidden shops and markets.

I’m not writing about some fictional scenario that’s never actually going to happen. I’m describing what you could experience as a travel writer. And, as you can see from student Jocelyn Pride’s comments below (in our Student Success section), it actually happens.

This is not some fantasy. If you’re interested in Travel Writing, then you just have to take the first step. And that’s enrolling in our 5-week course in Travel Writing. The best part is that we have two options to choose from – on campus or online.

You’ll discover:
about the different types of travel articles and why they suit different markets.
how to speak the language – understanding the industry lingo.
how to develop the right angle for your travel story so it doesn’t resemble a six
hour holiday slideshow.
how to structure your articles, using photos and trip notes effectively.
how to research travel stories, plan your itineraries and find interview subjects on the road.
how to write without ever getting on a plane – discovering your hometown or state.
how to stay out of trouble by following travel writing ethics.
the best way to approach editors and pitch your story to perfection.
and MUCH more!

Travel Writing with Sue White
Monday 8 October 2012 (for five weeks)
Time: 6.30pm – 8.30pm
Cost: $395

If you prefer to study online here’s the next online course.

Online course: Travel Writing with Sue White
5-week online course starting Monday 1 October 2012
Time: Whenever suits you
Cost: $395

TIP: Avoid false joiners
Sometimes when you’re writing, it’s easy to get carried away and let your sentences go on, and on, and on. One way of allowing this to happen is to use false joiners. False joiners are words such as however, consequently, moreover, therefore, nevertheless, indeed and similarly. These words are sometimes used as conjunctions but in fact, they’re adverbs and can’t join two sentences together without some help.

Here’s an example of a sentence using a false joiner:

Rambo went home to get his umbrella, however, he couldn’t find it.

It’s actually two sentences: Rambo went home to get his umbrella. and He couldn’t find it.

Because however is technically not a conjunction, it shouldn’t be used to join these two sentences. But, if you do want to clearly link the two sentences, you can use however (or one of the words above). Just make sure you use a semicolon first:

Rambo went home to get his umbrella; however, he couldn’t find it.

Student success – Jocelyn Pride
We were thrilled to hear from Jocelyn Pride this week. She did our ONLINE COURSE: Travel Writing in 2011 and since then, has scored two overseas famils. She wrote this to us:

Very excited to just land my second major ‘famil’ [familiarisation tour]. The company that hosted me (and my husband) to go to Alaska in June has just confirmed a trip to Baja Mexico in January. Thank you Sydney Writers’ Centre – you keep proving anything is possible. This time last year I was only dreaming of being a travel writer.

Congratulations Jocelyn! We can’t wait to hear more about your writing successes.

One-day seminar on Friday 5 October 2012
Time: 9.30 am – 4.30 pm
Cost: $395
Online course: Creative Writing Stage 1

You’ll also get practical advice from your presenter and leave with tools and techniques to make your fiction shine.

Five-week course starting Thursday 11 October 2012
Time: 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm
Cost: $395

TIP: Principal or principle?
Principal and principle – they’re often used interchangeably but they shouldn’t be as their meanings are quite different.

Principle, which is always a noun, means an accepted or professed rule of action or conduct. For example:

He has strong moral principles.

It can also mean a fundamental, primary or general truth, or a fundamental doctrine. For example:

Our courses can teach you the principles of good writing.

Principal is an adjective but sometimes acts as a noun as well. It means the first or highest in rank, importance or value; the head of a school or college, or someone who takes a leading part in a play or ballet. For example:

The principal dancer stole the show with her performance.

It can also refer to a sum of money lent or invested. For example:

She was assured that there would be no risk to her principal.

So as you can see, there are a few different uses for just those two spellings. If you’re not sure which one to use, check your dictionary!

Plan ahead – Thriller Writing
Want to know how to make your thriller an engaging, edge-of-your-seat novel that readers won’t be able to put down? Let best-selling author of The Genesis Flaw and Thirst, LA Larkin, show you how in this five-week course.

You’ll learn the eight “must haves” of a good thriller, the dos and don’ts of action scenes, how to build pace and suspense in your novel, and much more. This will be your last chance to do the course in 2012 so enrol soon.
Thriller Writing with LA Larkin
Thursday 25 October 2012 (for five weeks)
Time: 6.30 – 8.30 pm
Cost: $395

Writing Bar
We’re a little pre-occupied with travel writing this week (must be the warmer weather), so we asked the wonderful Sue White to share her top three tips for travel writers.

We’re also featuring a guest post from kids’ book author, Deborah Abela. As part of her blog tour, she dropped by Writing Bar to share her advice on Writing Ghost Stories for Kids.

The owners of this business have confused their message a bit. “No obligation free quotes” suggests that quotes will not be obligation free! That’s possibly a quote you’d want to avoid. If they re-wrote the sentence so it reads “Free quotes, no obligation”, they could avoid the confusion. Or maybe just insert a comma, “No obligation, free quotes”.
WEBPICK: Famous writers’ small writing sheds and off-the-grid huts
They’re small, simple and rustic, but what writer wouldn’t want one? This collection of famous writers’ retreats will no doubt inspire a writerly real-estate envy in many of you.

George Bernard Shaw’s shack, dubbed “London”, is here (so called so his staff weren’t lying when they said he had “gone to London”), as well as Virginia Woolf’s scenic writing shed. There’s also the rather luxurious cabin of Michael Pollan, which he built himself in the woods behind his home in Connecticut.

How to build your platform as an author (and how I got my book deal)
My new book Power Stories: The 8 stories you MUST tell to build an epic business (Wiley) will be released in a couple of weeks and I’ve had so many questions about how I got my book deal – and how authors are supposed to promote their own books – that I wrote it all down (of course)!

If you’re interested, you can check out how to receive these exclusive reports here. To get these free reports you must pre-order by Thursday 27 September 2012.
