Word Feast December 21

This month our language banquet falls on the Winter Solstice! Serendipity strikes again!

So come out and celebrate the returning of the sun! We will met on Saturday, December 21st, from 2:00 to 4:00 at our beloved Tranquilbuzz Coffee House. You are the featured readers!

Please bring a poem or two, or a short piece of prose on the theme of Winter Solstice, or any of the various December holidays, or on the return of the light, or anything that you feel is well-suited to the occasion and the season. The shared writing can be your own, or if you have a piece that you always love to read at this time of year by another writer, feel free to bring that along.
Remember to contain your offering within the respected time limit of about three minutes, no more than five max.

Eve West Bessier will provide a couple of winter-themed songs to bookend our celebration.
Celebratory attire is encouraged and appreciated!

We respectfully acknowledge that the entirety of southwestern New Mexico is the traditional territory, since time immemorial, of the Chis-Nde, also known as the people of the Chiricahua Apache Nation. The Chiricahua Apache Nation is recognized as a sovereign Native Nation by the United States in the Treaty of Amity, Commerce, and Friendship of 1 July 1852 (10 Stat. 979) (Treaty of Santa Fe ratified 23 March 1853 and proclaimed by President Franklin Pierce 25 March 1853).
