READING
W. Joe's Poetry Corner
Presenting W. Joe’s Poetry Corner, in which our host W. Joe Hoppe interviews a poet, who will then give a reading and answer questions from audience members. This month’s guest is Ricardo Acevedo.

Born of Yaqui-Mexican and Scottish decent, Ricardo Acevedo was raised in Southern California. He began writing seriously while taking course work at the San Francisco Art Institute in Performance Art, 3D Design, and Video Art. He was published in many local poetry/literary zines and performed with other authors such as Kathy Acker at San Francisco’s annual Poetry on the Water event. Ricardo moved to Austin in 1998 and established himself as a photo-based graphic artist. On the writing front, Ricardo’s poetry and essays have been published regularly in Harold McMillan’s Downtown Arts Magazine, and read often at Chicano poet Raúl R. Salinas’ Cafe Libro. His second prose collection, Sonambulo, was released by DiverseArts Press in 2003. Ricardo was published in the Texas Poetry Festival collection in 2010 and performed improvisational poetry with Austin’s Word Jazz LowStars from 1999-2013. In 2011 Ricardo published a book of his photography and prose entitled Interloper, followed by Night in 2013. He is also part of Christopher Carmona’s “Beats in Texas” project. Now he is hard at work on his biography and a series of Sci-Fi Noir novellas, and makes his living as a graphic artist and photographer.
