Kudos to those who are diligent at their weblogs. Here, as of late, for example.
On the road for the better part of last week: meeting new Guild Complex board members in Chicago for board/fundraising training; valuable work, valuable people. But equally important: a visit to Cristo Rey Jesuit High School during the day to meet with Octavio Gonzalez and Carolyn Alessio to discuss Letras Latinas Young Writers Initiative.
Cool time in Buffalo, NY later in the week, hosted by poet and critic, Peter Ramos, whose first book is forthcoming with Blaze VOX. Dinner gathering, one evening, at the home of Berta and Ricardo Tejada, parents of poet and art critic, Roberto, with whom I read at the Rooftop Poetry Club series. Great time all around. Podcast link forthcoming.
Aracelis Girmay touches down tomorrow (March 19th) in the Windy City for PALABRA PURA. Alas: will have to miss this one. Thanks to Lisa Alvarado for plugging it on March 13th over at La Bloga
Latino Poetry Review (LPR) is rounding the final curve and on the homestretch. Stay tuned for lift off in a matter of days---a week and a half tops!
Later in the week here in the capital: SPLIT THIS ROCK.
