More Reflections on the Final Reading

I mentioned a few notes on the MMIX Writers’ Blog about the EV Final Reading at the Hammer, but I’ll write more here.

A night to definitely bookmark in my experiences as a writer in Los Angeles.  Running 20 minutes late, I missed sound check and was immediately rushed to the Green Room.  How fancy.  It was absolutely terrifying seeing so many people in the crowd.  I hear there were 200 people — our biggest audience yet.  Mom and family were out there too!

I read four poems from the aswang project I’m writing; two from Ascela’s voice, one from Leticia and the last in the anthropologist’s persona.

I am so blessed to be writing in a safe, creative and encouraging space of writers — all of whom have supported me in my writing, and in my actual living in L.A.

I can truly say that I found home here.
