Dear Editor

I’ve released a collection of poetry, and sometimes prose, every year since 2015.  I’ve existed outside the literary establishment with great success (if you view my career through a punk rock lens, which I do).  This month I’ll be unofficially releasing STRIDE, my 8th.  The release will feature what I call Standup Tragedy™–storytelling, poetry and dark humor.  

It’s an unofficial release because I don’t know what difference poetry can make in these dark times.  But we’ll be doing it at the Dead Confederate—a former home of the last confederate governor of the U.S., and a 118-year old historical building and living museum, owned and operated by a yankee.  We’ll have a VDR of Travis County tabling the event as well.  The show will be an intimate affair, and feature luminaries of the Austin poetry community.

I think this event could be of interest to Chronicle readers, punk rockers, artists and anyone feeling hopeless.  We’ll kick against the doom a little for the sake of art.  What could be better?

  1. Will this be recorded as a livestream? That is the day I fly to CA and can only watch at a later date. Sounds like a magnificent event! Have a blast, and congrats! XoDonna
