Video From The Gaithersburg Poetry Reading

Our poetry reading on June 11th at The Gallery at Chesapeake Framing was a huge success.  Many thanks to Mary Jo Moon and Rachel Payne at Chesapeake for offering us such a fabulous venue, and to all the poets, Gregory Luce, Leeya Mehta, Serena Agusto-Cox, Donald Illich, and Katherine E. Young and Marysol Hohl, as well as everyone who read at the open mic.

If you were not able to attend the reading, you can now enjoy it via video, courtesy of Serena’s husband Cris who had a camera rolling.  I had the pleasure to introduce all of the other readers, so I kept my own reading short, you can find it at the 10 minute mark on the third video.

We anticipate doing another reading in the fall, if you are interested in being a featured reader, please contact me.

New Poem: Penn Station

Many thanks to One Sentence Poems for publishing my poem, Penn Station.  I’d excerpt it here but it’s a bit short for that.  Let’s just say that I managed to discuss trains, quinoa, and piss in one sentence.

Another Great Year At The Gaithersburg Book Festival

We had a great time at the Gaithersburg Book Festival this year!  So proud of the teens from the Gaithersburg Teen Writing Club, which I co-mentor, for their flawless introduction of authors Meg Medina and Christine Kendall.

The creative writing workshop that I led with Robin Stevens Payes and Neal P. Gillen, who also mentor MWA teen writing clubs, was fantastic.  We had good attendance and the kids responded with great enthusiasm to the prompts that we gave them. Many thanks to Pam Schipper from the Town Courier for featuring our workshop in her coverage of GBF!
