Happy New Year (in February)! A few invitations…
Tomorrow, Wednesday, February 2, at 6 p.m. PT, I’ll be in conversation with my National Poetry Series partner in crime Amanda Moore, hosted by Mills alums Lizzie Brock and Michelle Simotas through City College of San Francisco (CCSF). Virtual, free, and open to the public—join the Zoom here (no registration required).
On Saturday, March 26, at 3:20 p.m. ET, I’ve been tapped to fill in for a member of the National Poetry Series panel at the AWP conference in Philadelphia. There’s also an off-site reading in the works the evening of Friday, March 25—keep an eye on my events page for more info.
On Saturday, June 4, I’ll be reuniting with three of my co-readers from the fall—Janice Lee, Jenny Qi, and Amanda Moore—for a panel at Orcas Island Lit Fest (OILF): “Inheriting the Earth: West Coast Poets on What Gets Passed Down.” Details to follow.
South Florida Poetry Journal, aka SoFloPoJo, just posted an interview from the fall about Borderline Fortune in conjunction with the 2021 Miami Book Fair. And if you missed my interview on Laura Joyce Davis’s podcast Shelter in Place, it’s now available via YouTube in addition to all the major streaming platforms. (If you’re interested in honing your audio and storytelling skills, Laura has also launched immersive and self-paced training programs through Kasama Collective.)
Finally, if this is the year you want to spark more ideas for your writing, I’ll be leading a generative poetry workshop as part of a four-week series for Eastham Public Library on Tuesday, April 12, at 6 p.m. ET. Virtual, free, and open to the public—register here.
Wishing you health and fulfillment in 2022. xo
