SNOETRY: A Winter Wordfest
took place in the historic town of North East (Erie), PA, on January 16, 2010. What a bash, what an energetic gathering and what poetic lineup! I was a featured poet among the 40 or so (we had brilliant open mic-ers too) poets from diverse states (see the fabulous poets’ list here
). And oh, music too, with two bands adding to the soaring spirit!
Poets Dianne Borsenik and John Burroughs of “Lix and Kix” poetry event from Cleveland stormed the show with their lively emceeing and reading. Snoetry took off in the dazzling and artistic bookshop “The Last Wordsmith” run by friend Megan Collins, of North East, PA.
Among the poems I read were Finding Foremothers; The First Apple Sings a Ruba’i; Tea with Reza; Conversation, etc.
Here are some pics of me with John, Dianne and Megan, and myself in the exalted reading pose (see more pics here
