When in NYC, I always do something different. It’s a crazy town, and I’m open to trying new things. Last night, I tried something new.
I’m no longer an open mic virgin, and I can say I’ve stood on a stage in NYC. Well … it wasn’t actually a stage, but that’s a good thing. I tend to be clumsy and would’ve probably fallen off.
Not even a cold, rainy evening kept the crowd away. Along with poets, comedians, and performance artists, I read a passage from my second book, Spring into Summer. It was scary but the audience was warm and gracious, and the experience a very good one for an introvert like me.
I’d highly encourage all artists to give The Inspired Word a try. It’s a gem of an event to have in a great city.
Thanks Mike, for your vision and for giving artists a forum to express themselves.
