The amazing Tracey Schmidt invited me to participate in a special day this summer at Malaprop's Bookstore in Asheville. We wrote poems for customers on the spot during Poetry by Request day. It was so much fun to talk to book lovers in the store and write short, off-the-cuff personalized poems. Good practice. Maybe a few lines will be remembered by the folks who sat with us. Thanks, Tracey, for the invitation! Happy Summer, everyone.
