This October 2nd, I’ll be live at the original Harvest Festival in Stratford, CT for my third annual Demand Poetry appearance.
If you haven’t had the chance to experience Demand Poetry, this is a great way to see me in action.
When I do Demand Poetry live, I bring the Olivetti Lettera 33 out in public, to a beautiful spot like Paradise Green in Stratford.
Then strangers and friends alike request a poem from me on the spot. I ask them what they’d like a poem about, or who. We exchange a few ideas and I ask some questions. I take notes.
Then I send them off to browse at the fair.
I write the poem for them, edit it, then type the revised version.
All whilst surrounded by curious 8 year olds asking “What is that Mommy?” “Is that an old computer?”
Come to the green on October 2 and Demand a poem.
Bring the kids. They’ll be amazed.
See you there.
