Going Full Circle

(Photo above is in the cafe at Full Circle Books.)

Scissortail was just great.  It’s this quiet, but crowded literary fest filled with a bunch of professors and literary editors sharing their own words.  And they are AWESOME. Each poet or author reads their own work for 15-20 minutes. A couple of my faves were Brent Newsome, Mary Anna Evans and Elizabeth Raby. (Okay, that was 3.) The ratio of poets to prose writers is about 20 to 1.  imageMasterfully curated by Ken Hada, the selections contrast and coordinate like a stimulating mental dance.  Exhilarating.  It brings out each unique, literary voice. Thank you Ken, Oklahoma Arts Council, East Central University and everyone who came. I feel grateful to be included and so inspired!

imageNext up: I’m reading and signing at Full Circle Books in Edmond, OK on April 17th at 2pm.  I’m sharing the mic with a few other poets who will each read their own poem plus a poem from Veils, Halos and Shackles.  Come on out if you are anywhere near OKC.  

And in May, I have a couple of articles coming out plus the Menilfest/Gulf Coast Indie Book Fest on the 7th where I will be leading a workshop called, “Words Can Heal.” I hope to see you there.
