#5 POETRY LIVE WITH HIPNESS_AND_OUTRAGE

I have spent much of the past year curled into an mentally uncooperative ball this past year but I’ve still been doing stuff. Amy Zoellers started doing live poetry events on Instagram last fall and she invited me along for the ride. We’ve been doing one a month since. Sometimes they are in exotic locales, like the Woodlawn Cemetery or historic Independence Square. Often they are broadcast direct from our creative workspaces at home.

You can scroll through and find them on her Instagram page at instagram.com/hipness_and_outrage. You can see past poetry live events here.

Hear all about cake, hot dead guys, discovering new poets and almost getting in a wreck over them, mystery mailman authors, exquisite corpses and more…

#2 POETRY LIVE WITH HIPNESS_AND_OUTRAGE

Enter to win below!

Yesterday’s poetry in the graveyard with Amy from Hipness and Outrage went well and we had a blast telling stories, reading poetry and looking out for ghosts. I found out Amy loves hanging out in graveyards as much as I do, so now I have a cemetery sister.

Everything went smooth until I changed my location to just outside of the Vaille Mausoleum. Mrs. Vaille is a local ghost legend many swear to have seen.

Not long after I moved my camera went crazy, my sound started cutting in and out and then my phone went flat. Maybe the Lady in Gray is actually Mrs. Vaille, searching for acceptance.

All the technical crazy starts at the end of part two… and here are both parts. The giveaway I promised is posted after the videos. Scroll down… if you dare!

#1 POETRY LIVE WITH HIPNESS_AND_OUTRAGE

Talk about kickstarting the muse! This afternoon I had the pleasure of doing a poetry and chatter session with Amy Zoellers of Hipness and Outrage fame. Check her Instagram out here! We took turns reading our work and discussing the inspirations behind it. I even got choked up halfway through talking about Carts Full of Air (also posted to PoetryNook here).

That was a good way to start August. I haven’t done a reading since March, I think a day or two before we all shut down. It was the first time to do anything like this on IG. I look forward to more.

I love Amy’s beatnik influences and the way she incorporates the senses into her work. Suffice to say at the end of it I had a crush on a dead guy and a craving for banana cream pie. But why listen to me prattle on about it? Watch it for yourself here and laugh at all our mishaps, including cameos from a variety pack of pets. You can see past poetry live events here.
