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, where I host almost every week. For slightly more updated news, more personal material, and occasionally more quirky things, you can visit my regular blog.
November 23: Porsha Olayiwola Makes us Thankful Early at Stone Soup Poetry
Porsha Olayiwola is an early holiday gift. For me, Stone Soup Poetry and you the listening audience. She is featuring this Monday, November 23. I am thankful for this gift given to me by Stone Soup Poetry's new friendships, bringing new voices to our microphone. If you're reading these words, it possibly means that you're one of the many people who have been brought together thanks to these new friendships. I hope you will become new friends as well. I hope we continue to produce new friendships with each other. Maybe I'm getting sentimental, but the holiday season is almost going to be unleashed on us. And though not everyone celebrates or even gathers together for the same reasons this coming week (some maybe not at all), I hope you all have a chance to pause and reflect and have some good to be thankful for. I hope you are in the audience this coming Monday to hear Porsha Olayiwola read this Monday. We can all celebrate a little, before everyone else says it's acceptable.
November 30: Angelica Maria Aguilera Slams Her Way to The Feature Spot
I'm posting this as early as possible to let you know about a phenomenal feature that's happening next Monday after the Thanksgiving marathon. I hope you will all be well rested enough to see Angelica Maria Aguilera feature at Stone Soup. She has been a great presence at the Stone Soup Poetry Slam. If you have been lucky to attend the last couple of slams, then you have had a great sneak preview of Angelica's work. If not, you'll just have to accept my word because this is a can't-miss opportunity to hear a new talent on the rise. Enjoy your holiday time, but be back in the seats on Monday!
Take Part In The Oddball Show
A while back, Oddball Magazine (which I help edit) formed a partnership with the hip-hop group and arts magazine JP Lime Productions. If you visit Oddball Magazine, you no doubt have already seen the results of this partnership. This month, we have begun a podcast using YouTube and Google Hangouts. Check out our most recent show: "Post 9/11 Show in a Post 911 World (or: We Got The Beats)."
