New(ish) Poetry Publication

Belatedly sharing a poem published back in the spring by The Deaf Poets Society: an online journal of deaf and disabled literature & art, "Putting Your Socks On" (text and audio). I also got to do my first reading via Skype along with others appearing in the issue (some of them also Skyping in and others attending in person) at the Split This Rock Poetry Festival. I'm glad to have had the experience of doing a live reading by video, though it was kind of disorienting, and I wish I could have heard the other readers. There's something about the physical presence of an audience that changes how I read, too, that I don't quite know how to define. Still, I appreciate The Deaf Poets Society and Split This Rock folks making it possible for me and others who couldn't make the trip to participate.

In other news, Bob and I are still hosting the Downtown Bremerton Poets & Writers Open Mic on the second Wednesday of the month (the next one's on my birthday!). More info on Facebook or Meetup. We also have a feature reading lined up in Seattle on January 10; I'll post more about that closer to the date.
