Weekly Poem #11: In Memory of P.T.
Growing out of a creative writing program I initiated and led through an inner-city non-profit, C.H.U.M.P.S. (the self-dubbed Calgary Homeless Unintelligible Mumbling Poets Society) was a weekly workshop for street writers that I coordinated, planned and ran in downtown Calgary. Gatherings incorporated readings, responses and analyses of literature, creative writing exercises, workshopping and critique, and carved out a safe space for expression, solidarity and friendship. C.H.U.M.P.S. culminated with a public reading and launch of a self-published anthology I compiled and edited that gave back to the poets. Copies still available upon request.
Poems featured in anthology: for k, country siren in jazz dress, hong kong: a haibun
