[DUBUQUE, IA] Indulge in a blissful, mellow buzz with wordcure spoken word series on Tuesday, August 23 at 7 p.m. at Monk’s Kaffee Pub, 373 Bluff Street in Dubuque. The summer installment of wordcure presents "The Endless Summer Showcase" featuring original work from area creatives exploring words, film, music, and performance. 

This late summer showcase features original work by Lauren Alleyne, Susan Parsons-Cain, Tim Connery, Sunil Malapati, David Morrison, Colin Muenster, and Paula Neuhaus. The artists pay homage to the message of the 1960’s documentary surf-genre film The Endless Summer, which reminds us that we can chase the perfect wave by following the summer season around the globe taking craft to uncharted waters. In the film’s case, classic longboard surfing, in wordcure’s case, the blissful, mellow buzz of celebrating regionalism…the perfect art wave in our own back yard.

wordcure is an independent, quarterly series of free art happenings that offer the community free art and offers writers & creatives a stage to share their work. wordcure was launched by writer and arts administrator Paula Neuhaus in 2009 in an effort to celebrate regionalism mixing writers with musicians, film makers, actors, and playwrights. wordcure’s mission is to provide the Dubuque community with artful live entertainment alternatives featuring the diverse creative talent who are living and working in the region. Neuhaus has been delivering free arts programming to the community since 2007 including a monthly reading series featuring regional poets and authors, an open mic session, an annual book project, and a mixed-genre creative writing workshop. Neuhaus has also brought live performances of flow poets and experimental performance artists to Dubuque through her work with the Dubuque County Fine Arts Society, Dubuque Area Writers Guild, and Voices From The Warehouse District.

Create your own endless summer with wordcure on Tuesday, August 23, 7 p.m. at Monk’s Kaffee Pub, 373 Bluff Street in Dubuque. It’s cool in the basement. It’s cooler with wordcure in it.

This event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome. For more information contact Paula Neuhaus at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call 563.564.5290.
