Yesterday I got the contributor's copies of the anthology, Flashlight Memories, in which my little piece is published. They recommend that we sally forth and do readings at local places, but it seems odd and presumptuous when I am only one of many people in this collection. I wrote to the publisher and asked whether there was anyone else close by who is in this collection. Perhaps we can meet somewhere and read together? I think that would be interesting and would attract far more attention! However, perhaps some local book stores or colleges would let me read my poems if I only have a book to sell, even if it doesn't contain my poems? The only way to know is to ask.
Also, I have signed up for the faculty lecture series at the college. I asked if it were okay that I read my poems instead of giving a lecture. I appended some poems so they can make an informed decision. I hope they say yes.
