we are a tri-coastal community of poets, writers, artists, thinkers, activists, and people committed to the middle class, to working people, to the 99%. in terms of buddhism, roughly 50% of our authors & artists, in any one issue, are overtly buddhist practitioners — the rest are our secular friends, cohorts, intellectuals, artists, fellow travelers, etc., who do not object to our existential religious ideals — and that is what zen monster is: a space for writers and artists, edited by buddhists, but with clarity acknowledging intellectual, artistic, and political freedom from any ecclesiastical framework or supervision whatsoever. given history, we know this is important.
thank you, and please join us on Nov. 4, 6 – 9 p.m. refreshments will be served. and we will ‘just honor everything,’ as Philip Whalen once advised.
zen monster #3 includes:
