The New Orleans Poetry Festival returns!
The publisher of my book THE SUN A BLAZING ZERO, Lavender Ink / Diálogos, is proud to be one of the founding organizers of The New Orleans Poetry Festival. The fest returns after a one-year Covid hiatus with a full month of online programming this April. The opening event features a hybrid performance of readings from the new anthology I Am New Orleans, and programming continues with readings, workshops and roundtables every day for the entire month. Everything is free and open to all to Zoom in. See the complete calendar and access events at nolapoetry.com.
Lavender Ink / Diálogos presents a reading by recently published authors, including Erin Lierl (A Child of Many Waters), Shira Dentz (the sun a blazing zero), Vincent Farnsworth (Absence Like Sun), and Rosemary Daniell (The Murderous Sky).
Also in this session, a tribute Anny Ballardini, a lovely friend of the press, who has recently passed, with readings from her work by friends.
