JD Scott’s Magpie, on Ferguson and white privilege
WOW. Just stumbled across this… Thank you, Brown. The internet is amazing.
Sacred Grove is a new reading series based in Tuscaloosa. A play off the hallowed space that the Druids would use for rituals (Tuscaloosa is called “The Druid City” after all)—SG’s goal is to host readers, with the emphasis of bringing in writers from the surrounding Southern towns (& elsewhere!) to perform their work.
Our first reading will be on Friday, October 3rd @ 7pm—to be held at Icon (516 Greensboro Ave). The goal is to continue the series on the “first Friday” of the month, so please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org (with 3-4 pages of writing attached) if you would be interested in reading at a future event.
Follow this Tumblr for more updates, and PLEASE #signalboost so more people can find out about this series that is being made available. 💘🌳
PLS FOLLOW & REBLOG, Y’ALL. I WANT TO HOST YA WRITERS HERE IN T-TOWN!
I have a new poem (“Magpie”) up at Apogee‘s blog as part of their #StandWithFerguson space they’ve opened up for discussion about Ferguson and Mike Brown. The poem itself is a response and reflection on using petty theft as a justification for murder.
