wordPlay ground: Ep. 3: e.e. cummings

It's wordPlay ground, the new Facebook Live event hosted by 2021 Montgomery County Poet Laureate Paul Siegell. Each month, Paul livestreams from a different playground in PA’s Montgomery County and treats viewers to some of the most playful poems to have ever flipped his flamingoes.

MCPL Reading at Eclipse

As 2021 Montgomery County Poet Laureate, I:

* Contributed to: Red Door Recipies: The Ardmore Free Library's Community Cookbook

* Judged: Ardmore Library’s 2022 Charlotte Miller Simon Poetry Contest

* Created the "Laureate Lookback": Throughout the year on Facebook, I shined a light on poems of all the Laureates: from 1999’s Yolanda Wisher to 2020’s David Gaines and everyone in between

* Assisted in the early planning: Montgomery County Youth Laureate Program

* Co-created "wordPlay ground": For the past few months, Joanne Leva and I have been livestreaming from different playgrounds in Montco and treating viewers to short, interactive discussions on some of the most playful poems to have ever flipped my flamingoes.

Many thanks
