Poetry Ink Highlights

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

I’ve had a busy couple of weeks, but I’d like to give a brief update on the 14th Annual Poetry Ink event, held April 11 at the Moonstone Arts Center. Each participating poet got to read for 2 minutes, which gave me time for four short poems. They were well-received: I enjoyed seeing all the smiling faces from my place on the stage.

I didn’t find out until after the event that it has been webcast live. If the sound is archived, I’ll share the link here once I find it.

Finally, a shout-out to some of my favorites from the event: Dave Worrell, Kimmika Williams-Witherspoon, John Timpane, Jeanne Sutton, Amy Small-McKinney, Joe Roarty, Lili Bita, and Elijah Pringle. We had to leave about halfway through the all-day event, or I’m sure I would have come away with a longer list of great poets.
