About this Blog

The poetry / spoken word world is difficult to navigate.  We have lots of small labors of love, but not alot of organization.  Although I have been writing poems as long as I can remember, I am a Newbie on the scene.  This blog is to share my experiences to encourage other poets to come out and read and to more established poets to try something new.  I will try to put lots of links so you can find everything that I do.  If you find something that I am missing please let me know in a comment.  My focus is venues and readings in or near Baltimore, Maryland and online poetry.

In addition, I am putting poems that I have read / performed online.  As much as I like Spoken Word, it is nice to have the written word handy as well.

    you’re right about hearing the spoken word over reading it…I never ‘got’ “Leaves of Grass” until I heard Allen Ginsberg read it aloud…great site, best Darren King
