I’m going to be running my Performing Your Work workshop at this Saturday’s Litlando, an awesome one day writing conference. I enjoyed doing this last year and this year is no different.
How it works is you have two minutes to read your work and me and my panel provide feedback about your performance. From my experience in writing programs, performance isn’t something that’s taught or considered important and this workshop is a way to kick that aspect of writing off for you.
Tickets are $25 ($15 if you’re a student). All proceeds will go to Page 15. To get your tickets (and maybe be a part of the performance your work workshop), click here.
Here are some places that I’ve had work published recently:
I had a great conversation with John King at The Drunken Odyssey about Jesus Christ, Boy Detective. You can check that out in full over here.
Cahoodaloodaling included my e-chapbook Neil in their latest issue that reviews e-chapbooks that have come out over the last year or so. Check out all of these excellent free reads and reviews over here.
Here’s my upcoming appearances for August:
- August 4 – I’m hosting Spilled Milk Literary Open Mic. More details can be found over here.
- August 9 – I’m one of the readers at There Will Be Fan Fiction II: The Revenge. More details can be found over here.
- August 16 – I’m the featured reader at Wordier Than Thou Storytelling & Prose Open Mic at Studio@620 in St. Pete. Fun fact: my St. Pete book release for my first collection of poetry was also held at Studio@620. It’s a lovely space to read at and I’m excited to be reading from Jesus Christ, Boy Detective. More details about this show can be found here.
- August 18 – I’m one of the readers at the First Draft Reading Series in Tampa. The event page hasn’t been posted for this reading yet, but you can like their page on Facebook over here.
