About LiVE MAG!: LiVE MAG! was born to run at the Bowery Poetry Club. It began when Bob Holman asked Jeff Wright to produce a show. Wright conceived the show as a performance/publication event where publishers, writers, and audiences could swap and share. The idea was that by reading, or staging, a poem it would be like publishing it.
