On Saturday, I read one of my poems at SpeedPoets. It was the first time I’ve read anything I’ve written in front of a group of complete strangers.
The experience was more than a little bit nerve-wracking. But, going to something like SpeedPoets reminds me of how much great local talent Brisbane has to offer.
Basically, I felt inferior compared to some of the very, very talented people there. But, that isn’t going to stop me from doing my own thing, and going back again next month.
