Belfast Poetry Festival 2019
I was invited to participate in the 15th Annual Belfast Poetry Festival in 2019. The Belfast Poetry Festival is one of the few community-based, non-academic poetry festivals in the United States, and this year's event combines variety show, art exhibit, and literary showcase.
I was very fortunate to be paired with poet Lisa Panepinto, a generous and talented soul. We first "traded" works, then began creating in response to the other's words/images. At the festival, Lisa read two poems while images of the artworks were projected on a large screen behind her.
