I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be the featured poet at the Kick But Coffee Spoken and Heard poetry open mic on Sunday, September 9th. I’ll be doing thirty minutes of material, which means this will be the longest reading I’ve done. I’m working carefully to set up a good balance of poems. The event starts at 7 p.m. and is free (though if you’re going to come, please at least buy a cup of coffee to help support the venue).
September 27th-30th brings us the newest incarnation of the Austin International Poetry Festival. I’m excited to see the changes, and also glad that some things are staying the same. There’s a great lineup of featured poets, and I look forward to all the readings, open mics, and workshops. I’ll definitely be reading at least two or three of the open mics. The festival is free to the general public (though donations are appreciated), so please come out and help us celebrate poetry in Austin.
