Hungry Young Poets

So I’m still coming down from the awesomeness of getting to participate in River Styx‘s Hungry Young Poets reading series earlier this month. I love that River Styx is dedicated to providing a forum for up-and-coming/lesser-established voices, I love that I got to read alongside some great writers (guys, Ray Holmes’s work is gonna blow up like a zeppelin any day now — keep an eye on that one), and I love that the podium at Duff’s restaurant was set up in front of a huge window looking out on the new CrossFit gym in the  Central West End. As a result, the spontaneous reading pre-show was a bunch of muscly dudes hulking out on some workout equipment, which really set the tone for a night of poetry. You’ll definitely see me among the likewise-rapt audience members at the next reading on July 16.
