Latest Performance

I'm a small-town poet in both written word and performance. I'm more influenced by rock and roll but I am also a lit-chick full of curiosity. My influences are far and wide and I can find writing inspiration in anything, from important matters to pure whimsy.

Open Mic, Events

I attended open mic night this past Thursday, it's one of the highlights of my month. Not just because I get to read for an audience, but because I enjoy watching other talented people as well, and believe me, I see many.
I also will be reading at the open mic all-stars on June 6 as well. Although I have yet to be chosen as audience favorite, there needs to be people representing literary art. I feel honored to be invited and am grateful.

I finally got my flyers up for my event on June 5. They're all over town and once I figure out how to share them online I will do that. It should be a fun night for all who attend, whether you're reading or just coming to watch and listen.

I have so many ideas for new poems in my head right now. It's kind of dizzying. Lines and concepts will come to me, and always at times when I can't just sit and write them out. Such as when I'm at work, I'm too busy there most nights to sit down for a few and jot things down. I have to remember what I want to write. Fortunately I'm improving as a writer in terms of getting my ideas out and drafting pieces. Since I moved from just writing in private to being able to read my work and beyond I've been learning. I've learned so much in these past months in terms of refining my poems and finding other ways to get them out.
