...is a brilliant new project over at Seen Reading. 30 in 30 is a collection of audio recordings submitted by thirty Canadian poets in celebration of National Poetry Month. I'm delighted to be one of the thirty. But there's more to it. Much more. Check it out. This has the potential to be a great poetry performance archive and a great resource.
I recorded my readings on Friday. What a challenge that was! We live on a snowmobile route, but never before did I realize just how much snowmobile traffic we get. Unreal. To top it off, the poor husky up the street was howling like there was no tomorrow. It took forever to get a couple clean recordings.
So come April 1, have a listen. You'll never guess what I picked to read. And I can't wait to hear the others.
Here's Julie Wilson's 30 in 30 intro that she just posted. She posted a teaser trailer as well. Sounds mighty good. I'm slated for April 6.
