What a pleasure to work with Network for New Music! Together we shaped the Germantown Poetry Project, conducting workshops with composers, musicians, singers and neighborhood folks to put together pieces about city living. Collaboration from the gatherings culminated in a performance at the Philadelphia Free Library. I provided text for the pieces below, composed by Jay Fluellen and Eric Moe. I was blown away to hear their work in person. Special thanks to the innovative singers and musician that worked on the project, and Trapeta Mason- my poetry partner in the workshops.
