Y'all, I had a blast participating in the Houston Poetry Fest as a juried poet! I arrived Friday, attended the kick-off event and the first evening reading. I got to see my friend Tria Wood read among some other fabulous poets.
I attended the open reading on Saturday afternoon and I was in the juried poet line-up for that evening. I attended HPF as a juried poet in 2013; it was lovely to see so many familiar faces and make some new friends as well. Many thanks to my friend Toni Holland for the video below. That's Tria's amazing purple hair. I read a bit from both my recent chapbooks. I hope you enjoy!
I was exhausted so I headed home before the final reading on Sunday. I am so grateful to all the wonderful folks who put this fest together and honored they included me and my work this year. I sold that last copy of Letters to Petrarch but don't worry! I had a new shipment from Unicorn when I arrived home. Every set of books I receive is a surprise! No two copies are identical. Check out these gorgeous covers:
