About the Event

Join The Canyon Poets on Thursday, April 28, 2021 at 7:00 PM when we feature the work of S.A. Griffin.

A universe in sleep’s clothing, S.A. Griffin lives, loves and works in Los Angeles. The author of Dreams Gone Mad with Hope (Punk Hostage Press), he is a Carma Bum and the co-editor of The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry (Firecracker Award). S.A. has been publishing and editing books, chapbooks, periodicals and broadsides on his Rose of Sharon imprint since 1988, titles include Teaching the Dead to Sing by John Dorsey, Call by francEyE, The Hideous Bible by The Lost Bums, lost bastard chronicles by mark hartenbach and most recently Hard to Say in a Way That Might Be Heard by Michael Lane Bruner and Mike M Mollett. In 2015 he was honored to edit The Official Language of Yes! by the late, great Scott Wannberg for Perceval Press. Widely anthologized, he has been nominated for multiple Pushcart Awards. In August 2003 his poem I Choose Not to Believe in War Holy or Not was on a billboard at the corner of Hillhurst, Sunset and Vermont Avenues as a formal protest to the imminent invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2010 he went on a five-week, 11,000 mile couch surfing tour of the U.S. with Elsie the Poetry Bomb, a 7 foot tall Vietnam era practice bomb converted into an art object filled with over 900 poems from around the world and all walks of life in an effort to spread Elsie’s message that we must learn to disagree, the essential core of all democratic process and civil discourse, or our Republic is lost. In 2012 S.A. was the first recipient of Beyond Baroque’s Distinguished Service Award. A working actor for 43 years, he is the recipient of the Dramalogue Award for his work on stage, and the Kari Award (Canada’s CLIO), for his work in commercials. A Vietnam era veteran of the USAF, husband, father and cat lover, he drives too fast, thinks too much and sleeps too little.
