Hi, everyone! Sorry it’s been quiet here the past few weeks. I’ve been busy with editing work, new projects and endeavors (which I’ll share with you soon), and doing my best to take care of myself during the pandemic. I hope you, too, are still doing well.
Today I have more exciting news on the poetry front to share with you! I’ll give you a hint as to the first announcement: It’s in the header above. (*wink*) Keep reading after the jump.
Next Facebook Live Poetry Reading on Thursday, April 23
Last month’s Facebook Live poetry reading was a big success! In fact, so many people asked if I’d do another one in the future – and now I am! So join me at 7:00 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, April 23, live at the Heart of the Story Facebook page. This free, family-friendly event will focus on poems I’ve written about springtime, poetry (since April is National Poetry Month!), and other related topics.
If you’re interested in attending, visit the poetry reading’s Facebook event page for more details. And if you can’t make it to the live event? No worries! You can still access the video anytime afterward on the Heart of the Story Facebook page.
New Poem Featured at the Boston Area Small Press and Poetry Scene Blog
I’m also thrilled to share that my poem “A Strange Easter” is being featured as part of Boston Area Small Press and Poetry Scene’s Poem During the Plague series, which highlights poetry written by Boston-area poets about how our lives have been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. “A Strange Easter” focuses on how my family and I made the best of this year’s Easter, the first major holiday we’ve ever celebrated apart, by having a three-way Skype call. Because even though we couldn’t be together physically, we were still grateful that we were (and still are!) healthy and able to spend part of the day together thanks to technology.
