Over the quarantine, I finally began adding videos to my long-moribund You Tube channel. Most of them are recitals of famous poems that I did as part of a Facebook series I called “30 Poems of Hope and Joy in 30 Days.” Others include a few Shakespeare monologues I’ve done. I also developed a poetry workshop for children that you’re welcome to utilize for your own students or yourself. In future posts, I will provide links to a few of these specific videos. Enjoy!
My essay “The Outstretched Hand and Other Consolations of Poetry” that was first published in The Coronavirus Collective (Last Life Ever : 2020) was reprinted by the national newspaper Epoch Times. You can read the article here.
An essay I wrote on the “consolations of poetry” during the quarantine is being published in a new book called “Coronavirus Collective: Messages of Love, Light and Hope.” You can buy a copy on Amazon right now. All profits go to charity. Written in the first few weeks of the global shut down, 26 authors share their unique perspectives on how they see the world through the lens of the coronavirus. I think you’ll like it.
