Poetry Recording: The 2020 MLA Offsite Reading

The 2020 MLA Offsite Reading, which featured mostly poetry, occurred at Town Hall Seattle yesterday. There were many readers, and most of them read for 2 minutes or less. The event was broken into three parts, with three hosts. The recording, which I made happen with my new H6, is below. Audio is minimally edited, as usual, but at least complete.

A bunch of poets in a room together

greg bem live from angeline

Last night was the Live from the Angeline! private event, which featured one guitarist (Salt Mouth a.k.a. Chris Phillips) and a bunch of readers (Paul Nelson, Nadine Maestas, Raanan David, Sonya Vatomsky, Aaron Kokorowski, Faiza Sultan, Scherezade Siobhan, and myself). This group picture demonstrates the power of a diverse line-up, and the power of friendship. Videos of the event are, of course, available for viewing.

From left to right, standing: Raanan David, Aaron Kokorowski, Maria Winters, Jason Conger, Scherezade Siobhan, Greg Bem, Paul Nelson, Tanya Holtland, Justine Chan, Jeanne Morel, and Faiza Sultan. In the front is Matt.

Ghost Tokens: Inumbrating Pinnacle: in Pictures

The following pictures are of the Ghost Tokens: Inumbrating Pinnacle micro-series that occurred last week. Though I didn’t get a gazillion images of the event, because I was mostly using the camera to record video, I am happy with the shots that I did take. Video is on the way–I will have that available in the near future. Minimal editing was taken on the images below, and I have provided descriptive captions when images are not the Space Needle.
