After many years of writing poetry, I finally decided to start self-publishing chapbooks created around a theme.
I decided to start with poems largely inspired by living here in Venice, California, for over 20 years. Many of these poems first appeared in the Free Venice Beachhead, the longest running collective, underground newspaper in the United States. This monthly, free paper features poems from a variety of people. Famously, it published beat poets Stuart Perkoff and Philomene Long.
The book, “The Lady Still Resides Here,” is now available on Amazon. If you are local, please come out to my book signing and celebration of poetry on January 31st, 2018. The event will be from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Mystic Journey Bookstore, 1624 Abbot Kinney Boulevard, Venice.
The evening will begin with me reading and signing my book. Following this, there will be refreshments and an open mic for guests to read one of their own poems or one of their favorite poems.
