Hello, how are you? I’m fine, just living in Modesto and creating poetry events at my library…the latest event is Words as Sanctuary: Poetry as Community at the MJC East Campus Library & Learning Center. Check out the gorg flyer local artist Andrew Cain created for this event. And I’m so thrilled to present, again, writers from the Hmong American Writers’ Circle, featuring poets Soul Vang and Pos Moua along with Yu-Ha Chao; the most excellent performance poet and REFORMA superstar Aideed Medina; and UndocuPoets collaborator and current Stegner Fellow Esther Lin. This event features an opportunity to have work published in a new little zine that our brave library is pioneering. See the event page for all the details.
