Last night, several staff members of Parisian Phoenix Publishing attended the Stick Figure Poetry Open Mic as part of our observance of National Poetry Month.
Our next special event is a visit to the Chester County Studio tour May 14 in support of fine artist Heather Pasqualino Weirich, the artist who allowed us to feature her painting on the cover of Not an Able-Bodied White Man with Money.
We took advantage of the open mic to test our new external microphone and our technological capacity to share. Here is the initial result of our effort, a special “podcast” featuring Nancy Scott reading “A Rose Blooms in Alaska,” Darrell Parry reading “Corelle” and Angel Ackerman with “Socks at 46.”
Click here to listen to our team at Stick Figure Poetry (on Spotify). We have mapped out enough ideas for at least one season of a podcast, but are waiting until we know what we’re doing with the technology and making sure everyone has the time not only for recording but also for editing.
As always, we encourage you to buy books or join our mailing list.
- Darrell Parry is the poet behind Twists: Gathered Ephemera.
