Everett Poetry Night—December 7!

Cheese and crackers—the day is almost here! On Thursday, December 7, I will be the featured poet for Everett Poetry Night at Café Zippy in, well, Everett. The festivities begin at 6:30 with Tanner Deraitus playing some music, followed by open mic at 7—then it’s my turn around 8. (Yes, my car is unlikely to be fixed by then—but I will get there one way or another!)

More info on the official Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/160797991319394/

If you’re in the Seattle-Everett area, come on down!

2017 Poetry Marathon: It’s official

It is official! I will be participating in the half-marathon portion of the 2017 Poetry Marathon. This means that, starting with the 6 o’clock hour (Pacific time) on August 5th, I will be writing and posting a new poem every hour for twelve hours.

Although I write new poems daily, try to write more than one at a time whenever possible, and have opted for the half-marathon instead of the full marathon (which involves writing and posting a new poem every hour for twenty-four hours), this event is no small endeavor. Fortunately, the marathon takes place a week earlier this year, so there will be no need to reshuffle my schedule—last year, I skipped the earlier of the two open mics I would normally go to, then scrambled to make the second one on time.

So! On Saturday, August 5th, starting somewhere between 6 and 7 a.m. Pacific time, you can follow my progress at https://thepoetrymarathon.com/blog/kevinjoconner/, and the marathon as a whole at https://thepoetrymarathon.com/blog/. I will also post my poems on this blog, as well as on ello.

Meanwhile, on with the countdown!
