Finally, the sun is out in Boston! The kids and I will be hanging out poolside at our local Y this afternoon.
Looks like I'm reading in two different sessions of the Mass Poetry Festival this October. Woo hoo! Also, I'm on the list for NYU's spring 2010 alumni reading. And I just applied to read at the VA Festival of the Book for 2010. Keep your fingers crossed because I am a Virginia native and I would be a little crushed if I didn't read at this event in my home state.
Don't know about you, but I'm getting tired of stories about poets making no money. Old news, if you ask me. Nonetheless, NPR has a nice story about emerging poet Elizabeth Haukaas and established poet Mark Strand.
Tomorrow, I plan to take a substantial about of time revising my second manuscript. I should get in some reading and writing, too.
Have a great weekend!
