Readings are the way I bring my work to life and before the pandemic shut everything down, I was able to share my three poems that were published in "tender, a literary anthology and book of spells: evidence," to a "sold out" crowd (however the event was free). Since that day I have done two virtual readings with my "tender..." family. The first, titled "A Celebration of Black Womxn & Femmes in Pittsburgh" was sponsored by White Whale Bookstore and the second was "New Work, Process & Practice" by the Frick Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.
