My Poetry Set from "Coming Up Verse"
To celebrate National Poetry Month this year, M Bartley Seigel, the current poet laureate of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, hosted "Coming Up Verse: Remote Revivals of Poetry & Song." This event was held April 9, featuring several other wonderful poets from Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Having grown up in the Keweenaw, I was one of the featured poets!
Each poet read to a socially-distanced audience at Michigan Tech University's Rozza Center, where our virtual performances were viewable on the in-house movie screen. Though the readings were recorded as a whole, due to contract restrictions, I can only share my set.
