Today a handful of poets chosen for the Poetry in Plain Sight project gathered at a quarterly reading at the beautiful Forsyth County Library in downtown Winston-Salem.
I was honored to stand beside such talented poets and read my work at this special event, which was emceed by Kevin Watson of Press 53. After the reading, we all gathered with a copy of our poem for a group picture.
This year, the project has expanded beyond Winston-Salem to New Bern, so it is truly a statewide initiative! The program is directed by Donna Wallace and sponsored by Winston-Salem Writers (which launched it in 2013), the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, N.C. Poetry Society, N.C. Writers Network, and Press 53.
