    The good folks at Rattle Magazine have asked me to come out for the Wrightwood Literary Festival! This is an annual event that seeks to foster participation in the arts in and around Wrightwood, and to share the beauty of the San Gabriel Mountains with the broader arts community. Staffed by local artists and volunteers, there are literary readings, workshops, and forums for all ages, set high among the big pines, providing inspiration and a day to create, tell stories, and experience nature that will have a lasting impact year-round. Imagine a whole mountain full of art and artists! SO FAR, I know that I'll be joined by guest author Victoria Patterson and  2016 WW LitFest slam champion Kelly Grace Thomas.  Please visit www.wrightwoodlitfest.com for updates and registration.

    Bringing together artists, booksellers and fine arts enthusiasts in historic Chinatown, Los Angeles, the A.G. Geiger Book Fair is a unique event that is free and open to the public. Modeled on the Art Book Fairs presented by Printed Matter in New York and Los Angeles, The A.G. Geiger Book Fair is regionally focused and convenes primarily West Coast based artists, presses,
    and independent publishers in a lively festival atmosphere. The first fair was held in 2016 and featured over 22 exhibitors. This year promises to be even bigger. Not sure where I fit in yet, but I'm thrilled to a part of it. Stay tuned for more details. Meanwhile, here's a link to the official website! http://aggeiger.com/bookfair

    I’m excited to be participating in this long-running New York City-based poetry series nicknamed Where the Pulitzer Prize meets the Poetry Slam. Every month two different poets take the stage and read back and forth, poem for poem, in what they call “the ongoing conversation about where poetry lives!” For this edition I get to read with the wondrous Jennifer Michael Hecht! Thank you Taylor Mali for believing in me! For more information, visit PageMeetsStage.com or call 646-543-5232.

I’m still learning how to update this page. Stay tuned!
