When Dr. Watts read at Ramon and Judith Sender' s Odd Monday series in San Francisco last March this is what they wrote about him:

harvey ellis (aka Dr. H. David Watts, MD) has spent a lifetime perfecting the techniques he now uses to pathway into the interior consciousness and allow it full access to his poems. As a result he produces a series of mysteriously interconnected images, which have the feel of arriving as if from no single source. His poems have appeared in Cider Press Review, Tundra, The Bitter Oleander, VOLT, American Writing, among others. He was a finalist for the Francis Locke Memorial Poetry Award for the most imaginative poem of 1998. His book Making was awarded the Talent House Prize in 1999. He lives with his wife and son in Mill Valley, California.

David Watts grew up in Central Texas and trained first as a musician then as a medical doctor. He was on-camera host for PBS, Lifetime Network and local television news in the 1980's and was a live radio host on KQED-FM. His commentaries on the practice of medicine can be heard on National Public Radio's All Things Considered. He practices medicine and gastroenterology at the University of California, San Francisco, where he teaches in the medical school. In 1992 he earned a Masters in English/Poetry from San Francisco State University and now teaches poetry at the Fromm Institute. His own poetry has been published in The Gettysburg Review, The Antioch Review, The Spoon River Poetry Review, The New Virginia Review and other magazines.
For a complete listing of his books: Consider joining us for a no-host pizza/salad or other entré dinner ($15-20), 5:00 p.m. at the Haystack Pizza Restaurant, south side of 24th near Sanchez Street. The 24 line and the 48 line and the J Church are the nearby Muni transportation lines available.

This is John Rhodes, director of the San Francisco Open Mic Poetry Podcast TV Show with Co-host Clara Hsu.
At first I was thinking this flyer would announce the soon starting of a project just to make DVDs of my show and video collections for sale but I decided to make my main project the creation of a poetry movie theater in 2D and 3D, and at the new venue have DVDs of the show and other shows for sale for a very cheap price like 7 dollars for 3 shows on one disk.

This is a few months before I start but I am going to start a project to start a poetry movie theater and make cheap DVDs for the poetry community of all our shows and some of the videos of events I’ve filmed. This will include Watershed Poetry Festival, and the Berkeley Poetry Festival. It also will include events like Sparring with Beatnik Ghosts. I have been known for not charging people for work, if people don’t have the money for a video or a DVD. I have no intention of turning this into anything more than a project to better the community without paying for it completely out of pocket.

There will be gifts for donating. I haven’t decided on the gifts but they will be like: 20 dollars: 1 DVD with 3 shows 40 dollars 2 DVD with 6 shows 80 dollars 3 DVDs with 9 shows 160 dollars 3 DVDs and an image transfer ceramic 320 dollars 3 DVDs and 2 image transfer ceramics and so on.

I might have a lottery too for 4 featured poets on my show. Language must be appropriate for educational TV.
Please send me your email to to put you on the mailing list for this project. We really are strapped for money so please consider a donation. The profit made on this is really little. We do this for you, and perhaps to make a name for ourselves. This Kickstarter project will probably start within a month or two. The goal is around 3-7000 dollars. Please Join my Facebook Pg.
