Bardic Trails online poetry series

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Event Details

Join us on the first Tuesday of every month for an online gathering of words, wit, and wisdom! The brainchild of the Talking Gourds Poetry Club, each Bardic Trails poetry night will feature an award-winning guest poet sharing their new and exciting work. The featured poet for January is José Antonio Alcántara!

José (Tony) Antonio Alcántara is the author of the debut poetry collection The Bitten World: Poems (Tebot Bach, 2022). His poetry has appeared in American Life in Poetry, Ploughshares, The Southern Review, 32 Poems, The Slowdown, and the anthologies, The Path to Kindness: Poems of Connection and Joy, and America, We Call Your Name: Poems of Resistance and Resilience. His poem “Divorce” won the 2021 Neil Postman Award for Metaphor from Rattle. His poem "To A Friend Who Does Not Believe In God" was selected as a Cantor Prize Finalist in 2022. He has worked as a bookseller, mailman, commercial fisherman, electrician, baker, carpenter, studio photographer, door-to-door salesman, and math teacher. He lives in western Colorado and wherever he happens to pitch his tent.

We'll follow his reading with time for Q & A about his work and inspirations, with time afterwards for poetry sharing from attendees- a Gourd Circle of sharing whatever poetry you wish or just listening in. For those who desire, January's poetry prompt is Duality.
