From the Paris of the Piedmont

The West End Poets Weekend, sponsored by the Town of Carrboro, was a lot of fun. There was a big turnout with readings by about dozen poets, including several kids from local middle schools and high schools who wrote some amazing material. After much nervous preparation, my ten minutes of fame went well. People laughed in the right places and didn't laugh in any wrong places.

The event is covered in the two most recent issues of the West End Poets Newsletter. The November/December 2008 issue is online here and the January/February issue should soon be posted on that same link. The January/February issue includes two of my poems, including a revision to my Carrboro poem (and a new title.) More poetry from the event is included here, including another poem by me.
