COLLABORATIONS

Poetry Scores
Poetry Scores is a St. Louis-based nonprofit arts organization dedicated to translating poetry into other media, including music, visual art and film. Our projects include an annual musical poetry score; collaborations with artists in sister cities, which so far have included Istanbul, Hilo, and Los Angeles; an annual art invitational; and the George Malich Free Film Festival. Samples of projects can be found on SoundCloud; the latest project news can be found on Twitter and Facebook.

52nd City Magazine Kick-Ass Awards
The first Kick Ass Awards was held in January, 2004, in Austin, TX, and was founded by writer Spike Gillespie. It was adapted for St. Louis that fall by Thomas Crone and Stefene Russell. Over the next few years, KAA winning alumnae Andrea Avery, Brandyn Jones and Ann Haubrich have joined the core group of organizers for the event, which is held in interesting St. Louis venues every fall/early winter. Between 2005-08, the effort was part of the late culture and literature magazine 52nd City.

The Kick-Ass Awards are handed out each fall at a free, open-to-the-public event. The winners of our previous events are listed on the site, with a brief note given for why they were principally chosen that year, realizing that many of them have gone on to all types of different projects since.
