On Sunday, January 14th, I had the pleasure of participating in a poetry reading at the Black Cat Bookstore in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Almost twenty local poets treated us to some of their recent work which encompassed life in New Mexico, spirituality, illness, and coping with loss of a loved one. The poems were powerful in their sincerity, and it was an honor to be in the company of such wonderful poets!
I am incredibly excited to accept and announce my participation in the Vermont Studio Center Artist in Residency program at the end of this year. I have been admitted into the residency for my poetry. I will spend a month in Johnson, Vermont deeply engaged in poetic and literary writing, as well as artistic and academic dialogue among other resident artists.
Throughout the residency's duration of the residency, I will maintain a series of blog entries detailing major events including visiting artists, performances, readings and presentations, etc.
