Big Poppa E's Poetry Project
Become a patron of BPE's CD and Audiobook!
My name is Big Poppa E, and I write and perform poetry. It's what I do for a living, and it's what I do to make my life worth living.
I want to collaborate with you on my latest creative projects: a brand new CD filled with fresh audio recorded at live venues all over the country; and audiobook and e-reader versions of my new career-spanning 544-page hardback book, "The Whole Wide World."
Oooh, and I have all kinds of juicy rewards lined up for patrons of this project, gifts that would be perfect wrapped in a bow for birthdays, Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa! (Hint, hint...)
I am all about delivering a dynamic live performance -- warm word fingers tapping arpeggios up and down your spine while you sit shoulder to shoulder in a coffeehouse crammed with people riveted to their seats by a sweaty bard waxing ecstatic on stage -- and, brothers and sisters, I want to capture that spoken word magic in digital 1's and 0's so you can rock out in your very own home any time you want.
In addition to floating videos and live recordings to the universe via the interwebs, I want to branch out into new directions. I am so excited about putting together a digital audiobook and an e-book version of my "The Whole Wide World" so people can enjoy them on their iPods and Kindles, their smart phones and Nooks.
Without you as an audience, I'm just some dude sitting in my bedroom in the middle of the night staring into a glowing Macbook Pro: You complete me. Seriously. The poems don't exist until you experience them and echo back your connection, and together we can create some fresh new poetry worth experiencing.
Let's make some noise.
