Hope you can join us then. Reply James B. Nicola May 1, 2021 Would be nice if there were a landline option, as I know so many of the participants but alas have no internet at my apartment, so have used phone for zoom meetings when possible. Break a leg, James, Theresa, and Mark! James B. Reply James Sale May 1, 2021 My dear James – how lovely to hear from you – I still miss those halcyon days in NY performing alongside you in Bryant Park! I will have a word with Evan about this since I am using their (SCP) zoom connection, but I suspect it must be as mine is in the UK – usually a link to the internet is given but also a phone in number too. Hopefully you can be there -and also please invite your friends. I know this is going to be a glorious event. And BTW I am close to having fully read your wonderful new collection and shall be reviewing it once I have done so. Stay safe. Reply Bethany Mootsey May 23, 2021 The meeting was well organized and the poetry was excellent. I enjoyed putting some faces to names and gathered a few tips for my own writing (increased usage of internal rhyme, for one.) Thanks to all who made this event happen! Reply James Sale May 24, 2021 Thanks Bethany – glad you enjoyed it. I hope there will be more – who knows – perhaps you may appear one day? Reply The Society May 25, 2021 Good to see you there, Bethany. I was scratching my head at “Beth M.” but now it all makes sense. -Evan Reply Bethany May 25, 2021 Haha yes, I have to have it that way for foster care and I couldn’t figure out how to change it on the fly. Technology and I are not always friends! Sasha A. Palmer May 24, 2021 Thank you for uploading yesterday’s Poetry Reading to YouTube – much enjoyed! James, thank you for reading “Connected” and for your kind words about my sonnet. Congratulations to all! Reply James Sale May 24, 2021 Pleasure Sasha – a very fine sonnet indeed! Reply Sasha A. Palmer May 24, 2021 In case you’re wondering about “David Palmer” – my husband was able to watch part of the zoom yesterday. And my sister joined in from Moscow – the wonders of modern technology 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply to James Sale Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
