Blue Boots - Poetry on Sins Invalid Blog

My poem Blue Boots - about disability, gender, sexuality, family,  from my poetry chapbook (in) valid is featured in the June 2010 blog of Sins Invalid. In text  and audio. I wrote about Sins Invalid in May. The recording is from a QUIRK-E event in June 2009. Where I read some poems for the first time in many years in Canada, got my performing mojo back - thanks QUIRK-E! 

I write about why I lost my mojo for performing in Canada (it's an accent, humour, colloquial thang) in the Magdalena Aotearoa Newsletter in part 1 of a 2 part series of articles. Part 2 coming soon, how I got my mojo back!

You can check out photos I took at this years lively QUIRK-E anthology launch on my Integrial Media Facebook Page. There was reading, acting, singing, movies, book signing and general festivity - dancing even broke out at the reception!
