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.
November 9: See Me at Timothy Gager's Book Release Party
My friend Tim Gager has a new poetry book out, Spreading Like Wild Flowers. The release party is this Saturday starting at 4:30 PM at Arts at The Armory in Somerville. I'll be there as emcee and guest poet. Mignon Ariel King and Gloria Mindock will also be there as special guests a read a couple of poems. More importantly, Tim will be there with copies of his book for you to purchase. It's a fun way to celebrate this upcoming long weekend.
November 13: Stone Soup Welcomes Kelly DuMar
I met Kelly DuMar and got to know some of her work during this year's Boston Poetry Marathon. I've been waiting for the right time to bring her to Stone Soup and share her work with the rest of you. That date has now been set. Bring some extra cash with you. In addition to being widely published, Kelly may even have some of her visual art for sale. There's no better way to treat yourself before the holidays really take off.
NEW DATE November 20: Lexi Wight Comes to Stone Soup
It looks like we'll be closer to closing November in style with Lexi Wight's feature. We are sorry for the unfortunate booking conflict at the gallery that caused us to have to rearrange her feature with us. We hope you're still on board. I am, and so is Joseph Skoot Mosby, who brought her to my attention. We'll see you in a couple of weeks, Lexi.
November 23: My Reading at the Climate Change Awareness Open Mic
I feel as qualified as Ivanka Trump to be part of anything related to Climate Change. But I can read and write poems, so I'll be doing my best to represent this coming November 23 at Weymouth's Open Doors, featuring alongside Eileen Clearly and Gloria Monaghan. It's another opportunity to celebrate poetry on a weekend, so I hope to see a few of you in the audience.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org will also help. More news coming soon.
