I am so grateful tonight to the talented Jenny Santellano for her beautiful reading of my 2015 poem, “hens staring upward.”
Jenny has a lovely voice and a truly enviable skill for bringing a poem to life. The video below is part of her Youtube series, in which she performs poetry readings to help authors gain exposure.
By all means, please check out her Youtube channel. It has a wonderful selection of recent work by other poets, and Jenny expertly performs each piece.
I received some nice news a little while ago — Jennifer Santellano will record my poem, “hens staring upward,” as part of her ongoing Youtube audio series. As I’ve shared here at the blog before, Jenny is a poet herself who lends her voice talents to help other independent writers gain exposure. (She was kind enough this past September to do a very skilled interpretation of my 2013 poem, “The Writer.”) I recommend that you check out her wonderful audio series over at her Youtube channel.
“hens staring upward” was published previously by Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine and Dead Snakes in 2015.
I am honored tonight to share with you Jennifer Santellano’s skilled rendition of my 2013 poem, “The Writer.” She has a lovely speaking voice, and I’m truly grateful for the life she breathed into the piece with her interpretation.
Ms. Santellano is a published poet herself. She also finds time to help her colleagues in the independent literature community, by performing recordings of their poems. It’s a particularly nice way of being generous with her time and talent. You can find more of her interpretations at her Youtube channel right here.
