We are now well and truly into October and September is fading into memory. But poetry is not, not yet. I am not pursuing RENT Poet as my sole source of income this month, but have had some fantastic writing nights. I've also started calling folks and planting the seeds of this being a 'wedding thing' - which I think is where the big potential money is.
On the 8th, with the Melrose Poetry Bureau, we wrote at LA2050's Celebrate LA in Grand Park and even got covered by KCET. If that's not legitimacy I don't know what is! The next night, with The Poetry Society of Los Angeles, I wrote in Downtown LA's Artwalk and performed in two 'underground shows' at The Must.
I also have some appearances coming up in this week, love for you to make it out!
Monday October 13th @The Bootleg Theatre's Write Club with the Melrose Poetry Bureau 8-11pm
