Writing poetry for people on a typewriter

April 30, 2016

Some poets and I had the chance to set up shop at the Charleston Farmers Market, armed with a ton of blank paper and … a typewriter. We were there to celebrate the last day of National Poetry Month. We charged people $1 for a poem. It was amazing how many people loved the idea. At one point, we had a line of people, waiting for poems. Was happy to connect with so many folks. And I can’t wait to do it again. Thank you, Derek Berry and Liz Coralli for joining me on that journey.
