WAMPP & Red Dashboard LLC Presents

Wine Art Music Poetry Project (includes fiction and fiction writers) & Red Dashboard LLC

It’s about time! (WAMPP began 2007-10) we started back up our entertainment leg of the publishing company. Our managing editor ran open mica and performance series to help get authors, musicians and other performers out in the public view. Many of these performers are veterans at their craft, some new, but all are welcoming an audience!
Elizabeth’s experience includes years as an event coordinator and caterer (cookappeal) before going back to her initial college passion as a writer and editor, and then publisher of RedD.

We found not all venues accepted poetry as part of their open mic series, so she began her own. Home venues, if space allows, bookstores, and other spaces are welcome to contact us to organize and host an event.

RedD is hoping to raise funs to help send two individuals to a writing retreat, festival, and or a music/song writing conference. Arts are important to us all, and we strive to make it forefront here in New Jersey, and the Pennsylvania areas. Contact us at editor@reddashboard.com if you have any suggested locations. Many performers will be introducing an alter ego to spice up the day.

New books by Nicole Yurcaba and Derrick Paulson

Our managing editor-Elizabeth Akin Stelling and poetry editors were excited to have received Nicole Yurcaba’s Hollow Bottles and an up coming novel manuscript this past summer, after meeting her at the 2015 BIPF (Bridgewater International Poetry Festival). She is not only as one blurb describes her, into Goth, but her words reflect her love for her Ukrainian heritage and her admiration for writing itself show in each line. She is now a professor of English at the very college for whom hosts the festival every two years. You can hear her read this coming January 12-15, 2017.
