Publisher by day, community organizer by night… or perhaps the other way around, it was my great pleasure to sponsor the appearance of William the Poet at the Jackson Street Jazz Walk. In our poetry-centric view of the world, I’d consider him a cool part of the scene and he is easy to find at farmer’s markets plying the trade with poems made while you wait or shop for radishes and kale. I am guessing he makes more money that many fancy-shmancy poets out there. I would guess he makes more money than we’ll ever see. Hmmmm… maybe we need a career change!?!
So it delights me very much to bring to the Central District, home of Entre Ríos Press, for a little street-livening!
You can see more of his work on his Instagram, William Curtis.
And do get in touch, if you are looking for an on-demand poet for your next event. I’ve got his contact information and can recommend him.
Here is his poem that he wrote for me based on the word, “Jazz”.
