On August 19, 2023, I had the pleasure of reading three poems from my debut poetry chapbook, Childproof Sky, published in 2023 by Cherry Dress Chapbooks.

I was joined in the reading by two accomplished poetry authors, Candice M. Kelsey and Dr. Cathleen Allyn Conway. The reading was recorded, and you can view my twelve-minute segment on YouTube!

I shared three poems from the book:

  • When It Happens
  • You Will Need Food for the Journey
  • Measure Twice, Cut Once

Each poem is read once, then shared with notes, and then read a second time. If you enjoyed these poems, please check out the chapbook https://childproofsky.com available for purchase!
