NICOLE HENNESSY & TIM JOYCE
Poets Nicole Hennessy and Tim Joyce will read at Mac's on Wednesday, August 14th at 7 p.m. followed by an open mic.
Nicole Hennessy is a poet and journalist from Cleveland. Gypsy Queen is her debut poetry collection, though she has been chasing poetry for more than twenty years. Her previous publications include Black Rabbit, a nonfiction profile of poet and artist Tom Kryss. Nicole also co-founded the underground art and literary bimonthly, Miser Magazine; and she will eventually launch her art and outreach effort, Universal Eccentrics, with some incredible, like-minded weirdoes. Her work has appeared in local and regional publications, and she was recently recognized as a Wild Wmn by the LA-based women’s artistic and wellness collective of the same name. Nicole is also mom to a spirited four-year-old boy.
Tim Joyce was born in Cleveland, Ohio. Throughout his hardscrabble childhood he was taken with cityscapes, steel mills, the trees of Northeastern Ohio, as well as the people he encountered—all of which he would sketch, draw, and paint. Combining music, poetry, and painting with journalism and teaching, he has found constant inspiration and a desire to express how the passage of time is imprinted on both lives and scenes. He has lived in Dublin, Los Angeles, and Berlin; presently he lives, teaches and makes his art in Cleveland. Joyce has had solo art shows at Waterloo Arts, Doubting Thomas in Tremont and Bay Arts. He has published four volumes of poetry and numerous poetry & music cds.
