Come on out to hear instructor Daniel Ari and participants in Presenting You: Techniques and Practice for Live Readings read and perform their work at The Writing Salon's Berkeley location. This is your chance to support The Writing Salon's team of flourishing live readers and to catch Daniel Ari (Richmond Poet Laureate) light up the night. Daniel will be hosting the event as well as performing his work.
Daniel Ari delights in writing, performing and teaching poetry. His book One Way to Ask (Norfolk Press, 2016) comprises original poems in a new form called queron, illustrated in collaboration with 67 artists including Roz Chast, R. Crumb, Wayne White and Bill Griffith. Poet laureate of Richmond, California, Daniel created and produced the 2017 Richmond Anthology of Poetry, the city’s first, representing 62 diverse voices from his adopted hometown. Daniel’s poems have been published in Poet’s Market, Writer’s Digest, McSweeney’s, Defenestration, carte blanche, Thema, and many others, and he has published essays on the craft of poetry in Poet’s Market every year since 2015. He supports his poetic life through his career as a marketing copywriter where he has written haiku for Google. For pay.
