Which is where I had a chance to FINALLY meet my next publisher in person: Bryan Borland. It really was like we already knew each other though. I also met Dustin Brookshire, Collin Kelley and a host of others! What a great event.
As if making the trip down to Atlanta just to say hey to everyone wasn’t awesome enough then I also read terrific poetry by many of other good friends such as Jenny Billings Beaver and Jim Valvis in the current issue of the gorgeous Handful of Dust (H.O.D) literary magazine.
Oh and I should probably back up and mention that I also had a chance to hang out with featured reader Helen Losse on Friday night at the monthly Green Rice Art Gallery reading:
In additional shout outs, I also read and enjoyed a lot of great new poetry, essays, art etc in Prick of the Spindle.
In other news, this Thursday come out to Dilworth Coffee near Afton Village in Concord between 5-7 for the writer’s meet up and then stay at 7 for featured reader Richard Allen Taylor who will then be followed by an open mike.
The open mike at Green Rice on Friday was my first in a while and I missed it, but deciding what to read? HARD!
