One of my goals for 2012 was to put some videos online. Videos of me reading poems.?A few clips from school visits or public events. Bits with me and Lisa Bullard answering some writers’ questions on behalf of Mentors for Rent. So many options. The only problem? I’m not comfortable being on video. Ugh. Luckily, Renee LaTulippe at No Water River invited me to participate in a series of poets reading their poems this month. I was insecure about it, but I dove in and gave it a try. I haven’t seen the final results yet, and I’m at a school visit all day today, Monday. But you can see how I did (gulp) by visiting No Water River and checking it out. I’m happy to say it wasn’t as painful as expected (of course, I say that not having seen the video!), and I will have another?poetry video online soon.?
