Poets in Conversation

Sat, Nov 4, 2023 - 4 to 5:30pm PT: Poets in Conversation #28 with Lisa Ortiz and Farnaz Fatemi
As the Pandemic raged, so many poets, publishers, and in-person reading groups turned to Zoom as a way to connect, and to support poetry in supporting us.
Despite the Pandemic, new books were published and debuted. In an effort to bolster these new-book authors (including myself) I started Poets in Conversation, a Zoom poetry reading with two authors at a time. My idea was to feature poems from the books as well as conversation and connection between the readers and the audience present in the Zoom Room. The conversations are then posted to my Youtube channel for later viewing.
As of July 2023, I have had 27 conversations with a wide range of poets. Conversations #4-8 were with Grayson Books authors recommended by the publisher, Ginny Connors. So many great poems, and in-depth conversations!
After a summer break, we are continuing the readings on Zoom, featuring authors from many locales, some in the Bay Area of San Francisco, others from across the US and who knows, perhaps internationally.
