Videos & Lives! Creativity Abounds!

Here is a smattering of events and videos for your perusal. Some are time-sensitive.

Tomorrow, Friday, June 12 is the last day to vote for awards for Windsor’s first Youth Short Film Festival (Thank you Gemma and the City of Windsor ACHF grant!) filmmakers!

The voting link is right underneath the video in the text box (you may have to hit ‘show more’ to see the voting link!). Our Jett is a contender with his first film ‘Time Record’! Thank you for voting and supporting the arts!


A bunch of amazing poetry on nature and environmentalism will be read LIVE on Instagram tomorrow evening starting at 8pm as part of the Grown Lady Garments poetry e-zine poetry event (another great grant recipient, Alley Biniarz, brought this to life as part of the City of Windsor’s ACHF COVID-relief arts grants!). Please tune in on Instagram at @abeaans. I will be reading at around 8:25pm…as well as many other fantastic poets!

I’ve written a review for a forthcoming collection of poetry by Frank Watson entitled The Dark, Soft Earth (Plum White Press, 2020).

I was introduced to poet Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer during Firefly Creative Writing’s #morningcoffeesessions. Her poetry is bursting my heart with its poignant, powerful, provocative voice that holds up a mirror to our world. You can get her poetry in your inbox everyday if you subscribe.

I created a video that describes my creative process since I was not able to be physically in a classroom at the University of Windsor for the class ‘The Creative Process’. Thanks to Barry Brodie for continuing to invite me to share my creative process with his students! And, thanks for challenging me to make a video…It was an interesting ride! And…now I have a video I can share with you about how my brain works when it comes to writing. It’s pretty long (21 minutes), so maybe save it for when you have some time to watch it…It’s always an illuminating experience answering the question: what is your creative process?


Thank you for watching!

I hope everyone is continuing to be creative, be kind, be peace-full.
