Last week, I volunteered at Chicago’s Harold Washington library downtown with a group called Poems While You Wait. These writers work in public spaces creating poetry on demand. The group is paid, and funds support local, independent publisher Rose Metal Press.
Some of my work will be published onto the website here…
I had a good time, sometimes chatting with the passers-by or just quietly focusing on my work. The experience was somewhat meditative. I’m looking forward to participating again.
