The first snow of the season has fallen and we've got our December readings in place, (I am so excited about being a feature in Writers Guild Spoken Word Series on December 1 at 6pm EST!) I'm also honored and humbled to have poems in two upcoming anthologies, I Thought I Heard a Cardinal Sing and Women Speak, Vol. 7. And my poem Sweet Pea has found a gorgeous home in North of Oxford.
Not only has this been an incredible and sometimes unbearable year, but there's so much to plan for next year. Without even speculating about additional events, I've already got a good line-up of readings to feature or share the stage in:
January 10 7pm The Poetry Forum, hosted by Steve Abbott
Featured reader in online monthly series
February 25-27 "Trouble Don't Last," staged play at Ant Hall in Hamtramck, MI
Writing/Acting with the always incredible OneSingleRose
March 23-27 AWP Conference and Bookfair in Philadelphia, PA
Not featuring or anything, just going to soak up the everything
May 14 2pm I Thought I Heard A Cardinal Sing anthology reading
in McMaster Center, Toledo Public Library in downtown Toledo, OH
May 21 1pm Women Speak, Women of Appalachia Project's anthology reading
at Towngate Theater, Oglebay Institute in Wheeling, WV
June 5 7pm The Speakeasy Poetry Revue at Swordfish Tom's in Kansas City, MO
Featured reader with the always wonderful Adrian Lime
June 17 7pm Women Speak, Women of Appalachia Project's anthology reading
at Stuarts Opera House in Nelsonville, OH
And there will be plenty more, including continuing the Uncloistered Poetry series, both online and in person, and setting up some writing workshops. But I think we'll take a moment to finish up our current projects... setting up a home office, editing and hand-crafting poetry chapbooks for the Of Rust and Glass kickstarter, and just enjoying a holiday season we can once again share with family and friends!
From our house to yours... Cheers!
Be kind, stay safe, and keep doing that good work you do!
