The first post. So I'm sure introductions are in order. My name's Keith Wilson, I'm a Kentucky based out of Northern Kentucky, and a recent addition to the Affrilachian Poets, as well as a constant perfomer at The Running Word located in the Bean Haus coffee house (640 Main Street Covington, KY 41011). And as a recent college graduate and writer, I'm also unemployed.
So The Running Word. My good friend Sam Phillips started it, and through it, I've grown as an artist--I've learned what I even think it is I'm doing up there on stage in the first place. It gives me an tangible audience, a place to temper my presentation ability, and a community I can visit just by driving up I-75.
And tomorrow is our one year anniversary. Sam, you kick it the way no one I know kicks it, and I'm sure you know it. I gotta work on something for the big day, strange as it is to be nervous at the one place where I can read and feel completely at home.
