Idol elimination, Venus reading, Poetry update
Paige Miles was sent packing on American Idol last night after her disastrous performance of "Against All Odds" on Tuesday night. This ouster was no big surprise. You can read the full recap of the elimination show at Project Q Atlanta.
On Sunday, I'll be reading at The Writer's Center in Bethesda, MD with poet Susan Tichy as part of the Open Door Reading Series. I'll be reading from Conquering Venus and books will be for sale. If you're in the general vicinity, come down and say hello.
The video literary magazine Shape of Box is in a state of flux and has gone on "hiatus." I withdrew the poems and video I created for them and you will see it posted here April 1 and on the Bound to Be Read Books website as part of their celebration of National Poetry Month. Links soon.
Also, if you're in Atlanta on April 1, Poetry Atlanta and Georgia Center for the Book will be kicking off National Poetry Month with January Gill O'Neil (reading from her newly published collection, Underlife) and James May (poet and editor of New South literary magazine). Details at the Poetry Atlanta site.
