Poetry Reading: Sterling Arthur Leva at The Ugly Mug October 8, 2014


I will be reading a set of poems for this event. The flyer claims I’m an idiot, so I will do my best to prove it right, I suppose.

Reading About Drugs, Booze, & Transvestites Under Academic/Artistic Pretenses


I had the honor of being invited to read a poem at The WALL Literary Journal’s event at Saddleback College on October 24. The poem, entitled “Experimentation,” was published earlier this year in the 2013 edition of the journal. I was admittedly a bit shaky going into it, as I had never done a reading in an academic environment (as most of my past readings were conducted in bar rooms, drug dens, etc. to mostly uninterested audiences). What’s more, I had no idea beforehand was going to be filmed and that they decided to headline me, so to speak. Anyways, it was a great time and, in spite of my nervousness and lack of practice (or perhaps because of it), I think I did all right.
