I’m writing  from up at the Vermont Studio Center where I’m doing a writing residency alongside a gorgeous river, replete with turtles, and a woodchuck that munches on clovers outside my window. A good dose of nature, summer, and an escape from the many distractions of Buenos Aires (everything here shuts down at 9 p.m.!). I will be back in September, but if any of you are itching for a meet-up or book swap, you are more than welcome to host one, I am quite expendable really! All you have to do is pick a time and place, make a reservation for 10-20 people, and send me the details about a week in advance for me to post it, and of course, show up on time.

POWER OF POETRY Reading Series is launched!
