National Poetry Month

It’s been far too long since I got to be in front of large audiences in person so getting the opportunity to reach and inspire high school students during #nationalpoetrymonth was amazing! Special thanks to The Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation, the school librarians, and teachers who made it all possible. I loved talking with some of the students afterwards and hope my words made an impact. Keep our children reading and writing!

I am humbled, honored, and thrilled to announce:

Pamela Means & the Power of the Protest Song: Our Shared History & Present Day

Part-performance and part-presentation, this family-friendly public event will explore the origin stories and lineages of protest songs, how their meanings and impacts continue to transform through time and space, and how they have inspired--and continue to inspire--movements and cultural shifts within the realms of racial and social justice. In addition, Pamela will also share her own experiences with becoming an artist and using her voice. A curated assortment of original songs and select, recognizable covers will be integrated into the presentation as a powerful demonstration of how grounding, unifying, and mobilizing protest songs can be.

Last fall, I applied for artist grants to twenty-four Local Cultural Councils in Massachusetts towns from the Valley to the Cape to the Nawth’ Shore. I’m excited to announce TWENTY confirmed shows across the state from April to December (including a few venues that said, ‘yes! we want this show anyway’ when the LCC grant was denied) plus two more potential shows yet to confirm.

All shows listed here:
https://www.PamelaMeans.com/shows.html

Details are provided for most shows with additional info, myriad links and remaining confirmations on the way.

There are many to thank. Primarily, Mass Cultural Council and the many Local Cultural Councils across Massachusetts that have given wings and incredible support to this project. Eternal gratitude as well to truly heroic individuals who generously offered their, crucial and invaluable, time, insight, ‘will you please read this one more time’ patience, encouragement, and inspiration throughout the entire (this seriously kicked my ass, first time) application process.

Opening night:

SLOW REVEALby Melanie Mitzner is available for pre-order.

Set in 1990s New York, Slow Reveal paints an extraordinary portrait of artists who defy the arbiters of culture and challenge social norms. Art, addiction, and family dynamics capsize the Kanes when they discover the parallel life of Katharine, film editor, mother, lover, and wife.

Our Story

Michele Karlsberg shows how ordinary people make extraordinary contributions to their communities. Her philosophy is simple: “It is our giving that makes us strong, not our receiving.” Bottom line, she loves what she does. She is grateful for her beloved mentors, some of whom are Nancy Bereano, Sasha Alyson, Barbara Grier, Richard Labonte, Carol Seajay, Roz Parr who helped her gain knowledge and confidence in the book publishing industry.

She has worn many hats in her twenty-nine year career.

As a publicist, she brings a unique combination of skills to effectively carry out publicity/marketing campaigns for authors, organizations, events, comedians, musicians and film/theater professionals. Her list of clients has included Katherine Forrest, Felice Picano, Kate Clinton, Stephen Fry, Jewelle Gomez, Assotto Saint, Dorothy Allison, Martin Duberman, Judy Grahn and Minnie Bruce Pratt to name a few. From her home office stateside, Michele represented many International Publishing companies: Spinifex Press (Australia), Second Story Press (Canada), Bruno Gmunder (Germany) and Creation Books (UK). She generously speaks at many conferences about the business of publishing, publicity and marketing. When she gets to share what she knows about marketing and publicity in the world of publishing, she is one happy woman.

She is one of the founders/publishers of Amethyst Press, home of groundbreaking authors Dennis Cooper, Kevin Killian, Mark Ameen, Stan Leventhal and Patrick Moore. She is a strong advocate for independent booksellers and worked with Carol Seajay on the Feminist Bookstore Network. She is a curator of Outspoken, a nationwide LGBTQI literary series that helps new and established voices reach a wider audience. As publisher at Bywater Books, she published many award winning authors.
