The Rocksalt reading on Friday night went quite well, despite the fact that I didn't report in to the right person, and so almost missed my reading. The readings were, not surprisingly, of a very high quality, especially the readings by Daniela Elza, Bobbie Ogletree and Zach Wells.
It was a pretty intimidating group to read with, but it went well and I was able to promote One Ghana, One Voice a bit, which was nice. Thanks to all my friends, and Mom!, who came out for support.
If you weren't there, you missed out!
But you have more chances to catch some top-notch poetry in Vancouver (I'm pretty sure I'm going to all of them - hope to see you there!):
