Last Day of Work, Matjames Metson, and Slake Poets

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!
