The National and International Beat Poetry Festival will be happening this weekend in Connecticut and online. Congratulations to the fab writers receiving awards! [See right.] I won't be attending in person because my step-daughter is getting married on September 4th. But the festival has graciously invited me to participate online. So I get to do both after all!
Watch the Beat Fest online on the National Beat Poetry Foundation's YouTube channel.
