Want to hear me speak about my research, read my poetry, or attend an opera for which I’m the librettist? Here’s my schedule–so far–for the next few months. All times Central.
13 August: Poetry Reading at Writespace Houston on Facebook Live. No Facebook account necessary. 7 pm.
14 August: YouTube premiere of The Harbingers, a one-act a cappella opera with music by Rosśa Crean and libretto by me. Recorded in performance on 31 October 2019 at Rosehill Cemetery’s May Chapel in Chicago. 7 pm.
20 September: Curating Your Poetry Chapbook workshop through Writespace Houston. Join me in this workshop and learn about curating a chapbook manuscript that you can submit to publishers or publish yourself. We’ll talk about how to choose which of your poems to include, put them in an order that makes sense from an artistic and literary point of view, and prepare them for submission or self-publishing. 3 pm.
24 September: “Using Your ‘Research Pantry’,” workshop, Texas Music Library Association and American Musicological Society-Southwest Chapter joint meeting, 2 pm.
26 September and 3 October: Writing About Ghosts workshop through Writespace Houston. In this workshop, we’ll discuss finding inspiration in history and historical materials; how to research the past for your work and keep track of what you find; how to approach writing about the past in terms of language, like using slang and speaking conventions of different time periods; and develop new or on-going projects that beckon the ghosts of the past into our words.
