Announcements at the Gist Street Reading Series

I completely enjoyed reading for the Gist Street Series. The setting—an artist's loft—was cozy and intimate, the kind of place you dream of for a reading.  And the audience was fully engaged.  It felt like people really were digging in to each word.  No poet could ask for more…. reading in your series was one of the highlights of my life as a poet.
