West Hollywood Lamppost Poets Project

West Hollywood City Poet Steven Reigns
I am thrilled to announce that I am one of 23 poets chosen for the West Hollywood Lamppost Poet Project. My face and a line of my poetry will appear on a banner along Santa Monica Boulevard during National Poetry Month in April. The project was conceived by Steven Reigns, who was recently inaugurated as West Hollywood's first City Poet. It's a brilliant way to get poetry in front of the thousands of people who drive, walk and bike along Santa Monica Boulevard on a daily basis.

A special reading to celebrate the project will be held on April 25 at 4 p.m. at the West Hollywood Library, 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. I'll be reading with fellow lamppost poets Teka-Lark Fleming, Amy Gerstler, Eloise Klein Healy, Michael Klein, Terry Wolverton and Steven. The full list of poets who will be featured on the lampposts will be revealed soon!
