This July, I read poems from a project about COVID-19 and the Second Plague Pandemic (1347-1700) in the Bloom Reading Series for Storyfort at the Idaho Botanical Garden.
The project, which tells the stories of impacted individuals through primary and secondary sources, is funded by a grant from the COVID Cultural Commissioning Fund.
This month, I got to participate in Death Rattle Writers Festival.
Last month, I got to help plan and host an Earth Day Poetry Reading as part of the BSU Department of Sustainability’s Earth Week 2019.
I was joined by Kat Davis, Lisa Hecht, and Pei-Lin Yu in planning and hosting the event.
I got to curate and be part of an amazing poetry reading this past Saturday: an Earth Day 2018 poetry reading at The Cabin.
It featured nine local poets (Catherine Kyle, Rachel Murphy, Amanda Rich, Hannah Rodabaugh, Ruth Salter, Daphne Stanford, Elena Tomorowitz, and Tessy Ward) and Rena Ashton (educational director of Zoo Boise). They read poetry and essays about nature and conservation.
