I didn’t know that this existed but as an aspiring teen poet, it is great to know that there are people in this state that are like this. I wish that there were more poetry reading venues where I am from but knowing that there are people out here supporting poets is absolutely amazing.
Hi Rena, We want you to know that we very much want to have you speak/read your poetry in person at a joint event of our two churches, United Church of Ferndale and Christ Lutheran in Ferndale. At the beginning of your reign you spoke to us via zoom at a joint Lenten service. At the present time, neither of our churches has opened fully due to the delta variant of COVID, so we are unable to commit to a date for an in person event. We just wanted you to know that Ferndale very much supports you. Blessings, Rev. Joel Aosved (UCF), Rev. Jana Schofield (CL), Nancy Tupper (CL) and Marilyn Burwell (UCF)
