VERSO / live jour- nal: "Water"

  • Mezrab 576 Veemkade Amsterdam, NH, 1019 Netherlands (map)

Volume 2, Number 5: "Water"

Water: one of the four classical elements, dating from pre-Socratic times, and perhaps an appropriate totem for an Amsterdam literary night.

VERSO / is Amsterdam's live literary journal. Our March 6th number, "Water", is curated by Euan Monaghan, the editor of British literary magazine Structo. In this issue: fiction from Christine Stroik Stocke, poetry from Susan J. Nassuna and a screening of the short film The River Man followed by a Q&A with director Richard Gorodecky and cinematographer Doug Hancock.
