South Texas Writers
Check it out!
I stumbled across this video the other day. It's actually a pretty good sum up of what's going on here in the south Texas lit scene (and no, I don't just say that because I get a nod... ok ok oko k ok maybe I do).
I've just been thinking a lot lately about what we have here in the Valley, and in Texas in general. A lot of times I feel really isolated and alone as a poet, but really, it's all in my head. We have a great poetry community here, and maybe I take it for granted just a little bit. So stumbling on this was particularly timely for me. Anyway, Edgardo runs the Writers of the Rio Grande website and he's the narrator of this little video. He has such a nice raspy Texas voice X-D
So take a little listen, k?
