Coming up the Saturday after Thanksgiving is a very special edition of the Mar Vista Art Walk, in collaboration with Make It Mar Vista and Small Business Saturday. This will be an all-day event starting at 11 am. There will be live painting, live music, live poetry, local crafts and goods for sale, food, friends, and fun!

I will be with the poetry non-profit I work for, Philosopher’s Stone Poetry. We will be selling vintage typewriters and our published books and there will be live poetry at our booth! We will also be allowing the public to participate in a collaborative community poem, based on the theme of the Art Walk, which is “Gratitude”. I am so excited to see what we create.

It’s going to be a rad day and I cannot wait to light the fire of poetry under your asses. I love hitting the streets with words. We must let everyone know that poetry is truly everywhere and for everyone. We all have it in us to be poetic and to live a poetic life, and I love helping people see this part of themselves.

If you are in Los Angeles, come to the westside (Venice Blvd from Inglewood to Beethoven) on Saturday, November 25th 11 am-10 pm to check out one of the best art parties in town. Visit to learn more about the event, and go to to learn more about our non-profit! You can sign up for our mailing list, learn about our monthly contests and find us on social media.

Hope to see you there!
