Instagram LIVE RHINO Poetry
December 3 - 5, 7pm CT
RHINO Poetry is celebrating Chicago poets' anthology, "Wherever I’m At: An Anthology of Chicago Poetry".
The MC is our wonderful, Liz O'Connell-Thompson.
This event is that Elizabeth O'Connell-Thompson and I were brainstorming and testing earlier this month!
I had a chance to interview Jessica Walsh. She is the author of the poetry collection, Book of Gods and Grudges.
Elizabeth O'Connell-Thompson and I are brainstorming and testing our new online reading event for RHINO Poetry. We are going to have a weekend in December celebrating poetry by our Instagram Live. Stay tuned!
Liz is wonderful. Thank you so much for getting me out from my comfort zone and introducing me to a new technology.
I attended the fanciest poetry party ever!
There was a poetry reading by Jamila Woods (she created a cento poem by award recipients), live music (Chicago jazz & blues, and fantastic rock), and chatting with wonderful poets & artists at Museum Of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA Chicago).
I met recipients CAConrad, Angela Jackson, and Sharon Olds. They were so warm and kind.
Thank you so much for hosting this cultural event at Poetry Foundation! I am super honored to witness these events in CHICAGO! Currently, the Poetry Foundation is celebrating its 110th anniversary.
And, I was really happy that people recognized my voice from WBEZ91.5 Chicago’s NPR station's poetry week in October. Some people complemented me on my poem, "Lake Michigan".
