Appointed Alternate Poet Laureate of Emeryville, Calif.
I was just appointed alternate Poet Laureate of Emeryville in a two-year term, the maiden voyage for this position! Janell Moon, the new Poet Laureate, and I will be reading with one of the judges, Joyce Jenkins, at Expressions Gallery in Berkeley, 12/17/10.
Almost all roads seem to lead to Emeryville lately: I recently became an editor/writer for an Emeryville environmental engineering firm and have just begun my fourth year of teaching poetry-writing in the city's public elementary school, Anna Yates.
