It did not take a fitting room to know that doing an online reading would be the most comfortable approach for me to perform my first reading ever outside of a radio spot with KJHK five years ago and a recorded submission to The Five-Two earlier in 2020.
Here I read several poems for seveneightfive’s 20th installment of the House Concert Series which they began as a response to the shuttering of performance venues for musicians and poets in and around Topeka, Kan. Picking up steam they were able to partner with Arts Connect and Poetry for Personal Power to provide payment to artists who perform during the ongoing series. Cheers to that! So, thank you seveneightfive, Arts Connect, and Poetry for Personal Power for making my first reading ever possible.
