This’ll be quick. First off, I just want to thank everyone who came out to see me at Livewords last Thursday, and especially those who contributed their compliments and constructive criticism. I think my performance was one of my best yet, and the show as a whole was pretty spectacular. Even more importantly, I got a lot of excellent and helpful comments that will go a long way towards determining the direction I’ll be headed in with my poetry. So stay tuned for more open mic performances of new and radical pieces!
If you missed the reading (or if you enjoyed it so much that you’d like to relive it), I’ve also posted a video of my performance of one of the set’s poems, “Recorded Instructions for a Secret Agent,” on YouTube. You can check it out here. Take a look if you’re interested, and feel free to comment if you’re so inclined.
For now, I’ll be refocusing some of my energy onto the first weeks of graduate studies. But I’ll be sure to keep posting news of my creative writing endeavours to keep you all informed!
