Canceled. Canceled. Canceled.
That’s been the theme song of 2020. Meanwhile, many organizations and publishers are opening virtual spaces where artists and communities may gather to share pandemic experiences, to grieve and speak back to racial violence, and to sustain creativity as a response to destruction. I’ve been following The Social Distance Reading Series hosted by The Vermont School and Green Mountains Review, where poets are launching new books.
My time at home, though Zoom-intensive, has enabled observation and reflection, time to write and keep my hands close to ink, paint, and paper.
A new poem is forthcoming in Passager, with others on the way. Stay tuned, stay well, and create.
