I was honored to have a poem, “Evening, McAbee Beach,” published in the 2019 WordFest Anthology . The theme of this year’s anthology is water. I wrote this particular poem while visiting one of my favorite spots on Cannery Row in Monterey, California.
WordFest is a part of the annual Waco Cultural Arts Fest which will be held in October. The event is a non-profit festival supporting art in all its forms.
Although I am unable to attend the festival, I’m thrilled that my sweet sister, Kimberly Corley Tavernier, who lives a couple of hours from Waco and who grew up in Monterey, has offered to attend and to read my poem at the event. I’m hoping to get some pictures and maybe even a video of her reading.
