The thing is I write, but I never really learned to write for the page - because really I write so I know what to say next.
So - I have something to say, a whole lot of it -- and it will look gorgeous on the page in my chapbook but I want you to hear what the page sounds like in my head -- or better what it sounds like when I am reading my poetry from stage. So - this project will combine my writing and reading stylings together, in one pretty package, as the chapbook will come with an audio recording of all the included poems. And even better, it will come in two versions -- One version will have be decidedly old school and include a CD recording of all the poems, the other version will include QR codes on the page to link you to each individual sound recording.
While Self-published and self-recorded, the chapbook printing, cd printing and duplication will be outsourced. Your backing will help me make copies of my recordings and get my chapbook printed.
Risks and challenges
My only worry is that the world runs out of toner, or the post office fails to be efficient . I mean sure, I could not have a book that gets ready to print -- or maybe I get laryngitis - and can't finish the recordings -- that would be terrible -- but if any of these things happen, I promise, teacher promise, to keep all of my backers up to date with all that is happening.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
