At The Poets' Corner @ Art & the Vineyard, July 3, 2016, with authors Janice D. Rubin, Katharine Valentino, Charles R. Castle Jr., Adam Levon Brown, Catherine McGuire and me, C. Steven Blue.

WORDSONGS--Too Blue, the second album in The Wordsongs Series, is all about the blues: hardships and heartaches, failed relationships, the trials and tribulations of love throughout the
years—paying the dues to sing the blues. Personal and evocative, C. Steven Blue presents another set of revealing and inspirational wordsongs.
The Wordsongs Series:
Each book in this series contains 20 pieces designed to be similar in scope to a music record album, with side one and side two, but instead of songs it is comprised of a style of poems that are called wordsongs. Each book is a concept album, with a general theme running through it, told in verse format.
Wordsongs are the original creation of C.Steven Blue, who also created a definition for this concept:
word'song, n. [AS. wordsong.]
1. a poem that is like a song or could be a song
2. verses that tell a story in song-like rhythm,
often with a refrain
3. a song that you read
My intention with this blog is to catalog and update my progress as I pursue my writing career in retirement. I will be posting about poetry events I am involved in, as well as the publishing and performing of my work. Here you can observe my adventures. Feel free to comment.
