I had such a great time at the reading last week at Naked City Gallery.  The audience was friendly and appreciative–it is so nice to be able to share work with an open-group.  I have definitely been in front of more judgemental or critical audiences and it is NOT a comfortable place to be.  But despite all my fretting and worrying and mild stage-fright, the experience was awesome.  I’d like to thank everyone, including my best friend who drove all the way from Tulsa for the event!  I’d especially like to thank Iris and Carrie of Naked City for sponsoring a “Night in Verse.”  Next month will be Big Poppa E, a veteran spoken-word artist, on December 15th.  He’s a fantastic poet and this should be a real treat for the Wichita area.  If you’d like to learn more about his work, visit: http://brokenword.org/
