More than likely I’d be happy to read at your online event via zoom or local in person event here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am vaxxed and boosted.

Category: Performance
  • Any readings outside of the Bay Area which cannot be attended virtually must reimburse travel and accommodation costs.
  • If you’d like me to read longer than 5-10 minutes at in person events for accessibility reasons, the venue or hosting organization must provide a podium or music stand and a mic stand and PA system.
Category: Performance
  • Duration of performance (for example, just one poem on a theme or how many minutes)
  • If there is a specific theme to the event, let me know, so that I can cater my set to it.
  • The time and date of the event
  • The address of the venue or how to access the online event
Category: Performance

I am physically unable to assist you in moving furniture, am not interested in being bogged down by event planning minutiae, do not own a sound system, and am also not a caterer. I am a performer. I also will not pay to perform. I need flexibility in my scheduling, and I am not keen on taking up any obligations such as regular meetings, classes, or shows that require me to do something every month or every week because I have health issues to contend with. If these are mandatory requirements for your event then please look elsewhere, or don’t be offended when I say no.

Category: Performance

I prefer to perform in the afternoon or evenings and am more likely to turn you down if the event occurs in the morning.

I am unavailable on Friday nights and Jewish holidays. I may make an occasional exception on a Friday night if you are offering me a feature.

Please also check the readings page to make sure I don’t already have an event listed on my schedule that may conflict.
