I’m delighted to be reading with two hugely talented poets, Craig Martin Getz and Julia Webb, on 8th September (please see bios below for more information on the poets). I really admire these poets’ work and feel we have a lot of common ground. We’ll be reading for about 15 minutes each before passing the baton to 12 open mic-ers who will each read a short poem on the theme of gold/dance. Do hope you can come along to listen and enjoy! E-mail me to be put on the zoom list and/or to book an open mic slot.
Craig Martin Getz left LA for Barcelona in 1989. He’s an English teacher at an international school. He’s also a photographer and has had several exhibitions in Spain. He’s married to the Spanish poet and novelist José Ramón Ayllón Guerrero.
His poetry has appeared in many literary journals mostly in the US but also in Spain (bilingual editions). All collections have been self-published and can be found at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
His 5th collection is entitled “The Gold Rush”. He’s thrilled to have the back cover endorsement written by Sue Burge.
