Excited Utterance

Excited Utterance is the brainchild of poet, educator, journalist, singer and songwriter, Larry O. Dean. EU  follows an "in the round" format, with Dean and two other writers presenting material in three mini sets apiece. This gives each author a chance to present their work in more compartmentalized bites, rather than one singular spiel, and the audience an opportunity to savor the readers in a variety of modes.

Larry O. Dean was born and raised in Flint, Michigan. His numerous books include Brief Nudity (2013), Basic Cable Couplets (2012), abbrev (2011), About the Author (2011), and I Am Spam (2004). He is also an acclaimed songwriter whose most recent release is Fun with a Purpose (2009) with The Injured Parties.

Laura Goldstein's first collection of poetry, loaded arc, was released by Trembling Pillow Press, and her second collection, awesome camera was published by Make Now Press. She has published six chapbooks as well as numerous poems and essays in magazines in print and online. She currently teaches at Loyola University and co-curates the Red Rover Reading Series.

Tim Murray was conceived, born, raised, and resides in Northwest Indiana. He is the author of several chapbooks including What I Did Monday (Ten Pages Press), Dinosaur Ditch (Citizens for Decent Literature Press), and I’m This Robot (Eephus Press).
