A reading at a San Francisco art gallery

"I take advantage of the World Wide Web to connect with a larger and international audience that would not have an opportunity to meet me *in person* or have access to my poems. The internet enables me to bring my poetry directly to you, wherever you are located. Video recordings, supplementing text, convey a visual and auditory impression of the authenticity of the poet that comes closest to actually being present at a reading." - Ana Elsner
