Will Alexander, a great poet, novelist, essayist, playwright and friend is very ill. Many writers from Los Angeles and beyond have helped set up a fund to assist him. Donations will go to assist with medical and other expenses as Will undergoes chemotherapy.
Please send donations and maybe a note of support to:
400 South Lafayette Park Place, #307
Los Angeles, CA 90057
Also, there are some benefit readings coming up. There was one in New York at the Bowery Poetry Club on Nov 1, and there are currently plans for benefit readings in San Francisco and here in Los Angeles at Betalevel and possibly at Beyond Baroque.
If you are unfamiliar with Will's work - here's a link to an interview Stephanie Rioux and I did with Will last summer on LA-Lit: http://la-lit.com/writers/la-lit-13-will-alexander/
Also, you can listen to Will reading an excerpt of his recent novel, Sunrise in Armageddon, published by Spuyten Duyvil.
