Houston Poetry Fest 2011

I am so pleased to have been selected as a Juried Poet again this year for Houston Poetry Fest!  This long-established Houston tradition celebrates poetry and local poets in grand style with a weekend of events and a new anthology of the Juried Poets’ work, which will include my poem “Recipe for My Daughter.”

I will be reading at the Sunday afternoon event, which begins at 2:00 and will be held at UH-Downtown, at the Willow Street Pump Station, address 811 N. San Jacinto St.  Plenty of others will be reading as well, and you can pick up your own copy of the anthology at any Houston Poetry Fest event.

Here are more details about the festivities:

Friday, October 7th, 7:30 p.m. — Open Reading with David Ray Vance, Jerry Hamby, and Juried Poets

Saturday, October 8th, 1:00 p.m. — Traditional Open Reading hosted by Robert Clark

Saturday, October 8th, 7:30 p.m. — Saturday Evening Reading with Jill Haugen, Erica Lehrer, and Juried Poets

Sunday, October 9th, 2:00 p.m. — Sunday Afternoon Reading with Ysabel de la Rosa, Bradley Earle Hoge, and Juried Poets (including me)

All events are free and open to the public, although donations will be accepted.  The festivities are sponsored by Houston Poetry Fest and by The Department of English and The Cultural Enrichment Center of The University of Houston – Downtown.
