Ok, technically I won’t be standing at an actual podium, but I will be one of the poets featured in the next issue of Podium, the 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center’s online literary journal.
Currently, Podium only publishes the work of students in their poetry workshops. The workshop leaders choose a student to represent their class in the issue. And by gosh Cornelius Eady picked me. Believe me there were many great poets in the workshop, and he chose me! Hooray!
Now my only challenge is picking a poem that represents my work. My two favorite poems from Cornelius’ class are off limits, so it will have to be something unpublished from the repertoire. Decisions, decisions!
