VCCA Fellowship (note)


For the first two weeks of November, I attended my first artists’ residency, at the amazing Virginia Center for Creative Arts, where I enjoyed true fellowship with a wonderful group of writers, composers, and visual artists. There’s no doubt that – like a group of people stranded on a desert island after their ship has sunk – in sharing the night of the 2016 election, we all became closer than we might have otherwise.

One of the Fellows was photographer Martirene Alcantara, and I’m honoured to be part of her ‘artists’ series. I’m also grateful to composer Steve Landis for encouraging me to bust out of my more formal poetry style into a Beat-improv(ish) evening…video to follow…watch this space.
