Many of you are probably a little familiar with this website, but might be unsure of its purpose. The main purpose of this site is to house the Tiny Tour, a very small book tour in support of my new poetry book, AWE. What is a Tiny Tour, you might ask? Let me take this opportunity to tell you. Due to the practical limitations of trying to put on a full scale national poetry tour at this time, I have decided to call back to a long intellectual tradition of holding salons, happenings, lectures, and readings within one’s home through something I am going to call a Tiny Tour. I am going to squeeze a book tour into my Philadelphia apartment, and invite guests to experience the readings by joining me there and here on this website. Guest readers, musicians, dancers and other performers will join me for a series of readings in the kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedroom, fire escape, and hallway. It is my big hope to both gain agency over the event of a poetry reading, as well as demystify the experience for a larger poetry-hungry audience, by providing easy access to my readings over the internet.
The Tiny Tour began in October and will continue through the next few months. Keep checking here for more information on upcoming tour dates and locations, as well as video from the readings as they occur.
