I’m excited to be part of the poetry reading to celebrate the 13th Annual Words for Birds Event. The event has been co-hosted by this year co-organized by Stone in the Stream/Roca en el Rio environmental writers and artists group, Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, and Deceleration. I’m really thankful to Marisol Cortez ( a writer and an environmental justice activist) for giving me this wonderful opportunity to generate awareness about our winged companions.
Join us for the 13th annual Words for Birds, a celebration and cry for protection of winged relatives for National Poetry Month. Co-founded by poet Jim LaVilla-Havelin, W4B is one of the oldest National Poetry Month events in San Antonio, Texas.Historically an in-person reading held out of doors within the beautiful environs of Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, COVID sacked last year’s W4B, which became a funky online zine titled “Poetics for Pandemics.”
The event is taking place on two days ( April 24 and April 25 2021) To find more about the vents, and how to register please visit the link here.
