Please join us for our next evening of Chin Music @ Pacific Standard. On October 29th, we are thrilled to feature three excellent poets: Roddy Lumsden, Jynne Dilling Martin, and Farnoosh Fathi. Other writers to be featured in Chin Music this season include Monica de la Torre, Alison Hawthorne Deming, Ian Douglas, Aaron Fagan, Aracelis Girmay, and Stuart Greenhouse.

Located on Fourth Avenue in downtown Brooklyn, near the Atlantic/Pacific subway hub, Pacific Standard is a literary bar serving up eighteen microbrews on tap and cask (including both West Coast and local breweries), fine wines and liquors, and tasty snacks like chips and salsa, and meat and cheese plates.


Roddy Lumsden’s poetry collections include YEAH, YEAH, YEAH (Bloodaxe, 1997), RODDY LUMSDEN IS DEAD (Wrecking Ball Press, 2001), MISCHIEF NIGHT: NEW & SELECTED POEMS (Bloodaxe, 2004), and THIRD WISH WASTED (Bloodaxe, 2009). Lumsden has worked as a freelance writer, editor, teacher, and writer of puzzles and quizzes for newspapers. He also composed a poem, “Bloom,” on the set of “Flowers for Kate”—a photo shoot of the model Kate Moss for V magazine. He was born in St. Andrews, Scotland, and lives in London.

Jynne Dilling Martin's poetry has appeared in Kenyon Review, New England Review, TriQuarterly, Indiana Review, New Orleans Review, Southern Review and elsewhere. In March, she was one of four winners of the 92nd Street Y "Discovery" Poetry Contest, which since 1951 has recognized the achievements of poets who have not yet published a first book. She lives in Brooklyn.

Farnoosh Fathi recently received a Fulbright Fellowship to travel to Brazil and write poems. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Denver Quarterly, Fence and Boston Review. She currently lives in New York City.
