My mother Debra enjoys writing as well and has been publishing some of her work on Instagram – the text along with some artful elements in order to make it “Insta-worthy”.
One of her poems was noticed by a woman in England who reached out for permission to include it in a publication she has been working on. The “zine” (we must use the hip language of the Europeans here) is now in the works and a launch party being held in Brixton next week.
Sadly, we are in North Carolina and not the type of people who can hop on a trans-Atlantic flight on a whim so Debra won’t be able to attend. She has received an official invitation though which is pretty cool itself, so I wanted to share. There may be a video stream of the event available – if so I will share later.
