Fall 2016 was productive

In addition to the ones I already posted about, the following were events that I was jazzed to be a part of in Fall 2016: 

  • On Friday, November 18th, I read with James Belflower, Matthew Klane and Elias Rodriques as part of the Charmed Instruments reading series. I really appreciate this space and series and was glad to share some new poems. More info here: Charmed Instruments
  • On Saturday, December 11th, I was honored to read with Sham E-Ali Nayeem, Seve Torres, Cindy Arrieu-King, Lillian Dunn, Margaret Waters, Kirwyn Sutherland, Patrick Rosal and Cynthia Dewi-Oka at the Village of Arts and Humanities as part of an event called "Who We Are, Who We Could Be" that asked: "In these challenging times, many of us are grappling with the question of who we are as a people, as many peoples. What is this we? Who can we be, co-habiting this movement and moving forward?

  • On September 26th, 2016, I was chosen by Billy Penn for a short list of "Who's Next: Arts" in Philadelphia. This project sponsored by the Knight Foundation. 
  • I spoke at Temple University on October 10th, 2016. I'm still amused that the only thing that was supposed to convince people to come to this talk was my head in clouds. Ha. It was a great visit.
