Today I had the privilege of giving a reading at the Well-RED Reading Series through the Poetry Center San Jose (virtually, of course).
There were many talented poets from around the US, and even around the world, and it was a beautiful way to spend the evening.
I was able the read my piece Here Comes the Bride–a prose poem about learned heteronormativity–and hear great pieces ranging thematically from racial injustice, to the pandemic, to familial love. My piece will be published online by Caesura Literary Magazine in the coming weeks and I’m grateful for it’s well received pre-print debut.
A huge thank you to the family and friend who joined the conference, and another huge thank you to the PCSJ team and other contributors for a couple hours of poetic community. It was a joy!
