Watch our Poetry Reading on Youtube

A graphic with many plaster tectured blobs of varying shades of grey-blue in the background. In the foreground, there is a demo of the book "Pet: the Journey from Abuse to Recovery" and above it says "Poetry Reading with Kella Hanna Wayne orginally recorded live on 11/6/22" in a lightblue, serif font.

I have good news! If you weren’t able to make our poetry reading the weekend before last, you don’t have to miss out. There is a video of the reading available to watch on Youtube!

I hadn’t originally planned on recording the reading but I learned after it was completed that because the reading was held both on zoom and facebook live, facebook automatically saved a recording (of the speakers on screen only). So now you can watch the reading whenever you want, at your own pace! I’ve cut down all the awkward transitions that are inevitable in live streams so you get the curated version.

I talk about writing, I talk about DID, I talk about disability, and argentine tango. It’s all in there!

What’s included in the video?

  • Live readings of poems from my new book “Pet: the Journey from Abuse to Recovery”
  • Stories behind the inspiration and creation of these poems
  • Personal insights on the way the meaning of these poems have changed with time
  • Readings of other poems not included in the book and their backstories
  • Music that inspired poetry and poetry that inspired music
  • Q&A with me about my work

Enjoy!
