The Canoga Park Art Walk ended with a bag. Cheers to the 11:11 crew for putting together such a spectacular repeat event.

I typed approximately 40 poems last night. A bunch of those are orphaned, so if you didn’t get a chance to get your poem, you can see it on the blog in the coming week. I’ll be posting a new poem each day, so keep checking in to see if your poem made the cut !

Here’s a current list of orphaned poems that have been put on the blog… Read the rest of this entry »

This will be the last Art Walk in Canoga Park for the year.

Be sure to stop by and find me & my typewriter. I’ll have a special surprise for anyone kind enough to donate!

This Thursday ~ September 15th ~ 6pm ~ Sherman Way & Owensmouth

Yes, you read right. I’ll be bringing my typewriter as well as my lawn-chair, cardboard sign, paper, and thinking/feeling hat to the playa this year.

I’ll be sitting by my tent, which will be at the Safer Sex Camp near 5:30 & B(irthday). Come say hello and get a poem !

Charlene also wrote me a poem last night at the Canoga Park Art Walk. I almost cried !

Long weekend…completely forgot to update everyone! As the @typewritepoetry twitter says…no new posts until later this weekend. I had the pros at US Office Machine take a look at my Royal. Turns out my carriage is spaced out a bit too far from the keys; it’ll take approx. a week to tear down and build up my machine again :( But after that, I’ll immediately get back to your submissions ! Just wanted to throw it out there since I kind of have a backlog of poetry prompts :)

Have a great week everyone!
