Poetry Enthusiast,

If you weren’t able to join the Wild & Precious Life Series live, never fear. This page will house the videos of previous readings. The videos are not edited and reflect the readings as they occurred. I extend my apologies that some of the videos start mid reading. At times, I was too caught up in the moment, and I delayed pushing the record button. Even so, I hope you enjoy these videos and that they you bring inspiration, comfort, and a smile during this strange and unprecedented times.

Yours in poetry,
WPLS Curator
