The Poet for Hire Has News and Events
I'll be updating this site with news concerning my work and readings, as well as including features for Stone Soup Poetry. For slightly more updated news, more personal material, and occasionally more quirky things, you can visit my blog.
January 29: David Miller's Long Awaited Return Stone Soup
It's funny. I almost described David Miller's feature on January 29 as his "long-awaited first feature." I usually remember when poets read for Stone Soup, but I didn't remember that David has featured twice with Stone Soup so far. Once in 2012, the other in 2014. He even co-featured in 2018 for the Walter Howard open mic tribute. Why did I think it was his first time? Probably because David has done so much for me and for Stone Soup. I never think I've done as much for him. My memory lapses aside, I'm glad to give him a reading for his newest collection, Sprawled Asleep. Join me at the end of January as I give the deserved spotlight to the loudest quiet voice on our open mic.
Know Her Worth: Genie Santiago at Stone Soup on April 22
Edit: The date has been changed from January to April due to scheduling conflicts.
I've wanted Genie Santiago to perform at Stone Soup since seeing her at last April's Amazing WoMen Poetry Showcase at the Dudley Cafe. Genie keeps a busy performance schedule, and we are thrilled that she is coming to Stone Soup on April 22. Please spread the word to your friends and to all fellow poets. This is her first time at Stone Soup's regular home, and we want to make the night memorable.
This is Stone Soup Stagecoach
Stone Soup Stagecoach is the new brand name/imprint for anytime Stone Soup Poetry has an event, a workshop, or a special guest appearance outside of our regular weekly gathering. As a Mass Poetry Representative of Suffolk County, I am hoping to extend Stone Soup from its current Cambridge home to Boston proper (where Stone Soup got it's start), as well as wherever else we are invited. I hope to make an announcement soon regarding our first Stagecoach "outing." If you are someone who would like to be part of a stagecoach gathering in any form, a regular presence at Stone Soup will definitely help you stick out as a prospect (that doesn't mean you show up every week, don't worry, I'm fair, but it helps if you are there to help advertise your work to me and to people interested in having us). Of course, contacting me at email@example.com will also help. More news coming soon.
