Today is my last day of work as an academic coach. I’ve been working at a rehab center for drug and alcohol addicts and teaching creative writing, and it has been an incredible experience, which I will continue to write about and allow to change my life. And over the next couple of days, I will be chronicling this goodbye as I start my career as a freelance writer.
And as luck would have it, I’ll start this journey with a bang. On Saturday in Chinatown, I will be reading poetry at Matjames Metson’s Method Attic—a one-night event showcasing Metson’s art at Coagula. For the event, Slake: Los Angeles has set up a stellar lineup of poets, including one of my favorite LA poets, John Tottenham. I’m honored to be a part of it. Check the flyer below and come to Coagula if you’re in L.A. Plus, there will be live music and a festive atmosphere in Chinatown. Don’t miss it!
