Writing the Apocalypse
In 2014, I began writing a cultural column for The Villager (an umbrella for all of its subsidiary papers.) When it was sold to a corporation whose views I did not share, I followed my editor, Scott Stiffler, to a new venture, https://chelseacommunitynews.com/, and continued to cover events, interview people, etc. The only difference is that it was Chelsea based, rather than a general downtown paper.
Then, the pandemic. No events, no people to meet with. On March 25th, 2020, I began my column, Writing the Apocalypse, with a poem titled "In the Apocalypse." I also included my photos, and, eventually, some photos by others, turning it into a sort of poem/photo essay, for a lack of a new term.
I've written a new poem every week since, and, since 9/2020, have also been able to write a few articles. This is a listing of everything to date, followed by a few photos.
