file0001663951199Let’s celebrate National Poetry Month by talking about speculative poetry, writing some of it and reading it out loud for everyone to hear! And treats. You have to have snacks when you’re creating new stuff, right?

Join me on April 16 from 2-4 for Poetry of the Weird and Wonderful at Destination Discount Books in Delaware, Ohio. I’ll give a quick presentation about speculative poetry, then provide attendees with a few prompts and ideas so they can write their own poems, and finally we’ll have an open mic for everyone to share their new (or previously written) pieces. You won’t be required to write poetry if you don’t want to, but I’d love to hear it!

UnderwaterFistfight_coverCome with your laptop, pencil, pen, paper and whatever you need to create whimsical, fantastical, monstrous and fun new work!

We’ll use this opportunity to celebrate the launch of my new poetry collection, Underwater Fistfight, from Raw Dog Screaming Press. That means cake and stuff, people!
