There was even live music afterward.

But I will say this: it was a real pleasure. I look forward to more readings in the future!

See You in Grand Rapids

Just a few days from now, I’ll be off into the heart of Grand Rapids and the sprawling 2014 Festival of the Arts for some quality artsy time in Michigan.

Kent Country Dyer-Ives Annual Poetry Competition

Though there will be many events going on in the city all weekend, I’m going to be reading at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (2 West Fulton, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49503) on Saturday. Events will range from 1 – 2:30 p.m., with a whole host of other poets and writers also participating. If you’re in the neighborhood, swing by the UICA and join the fun. In addition to creativity on display, there will also be free books, autographing, and witty banter. Not to mention art.

Plus, like I said, I’ll be doing a reading. With words and everything!
