I grew up in Germany and started writing poetry as a child. I moved to the US in 2002 and live in a small town in the Midwest. After more than a decade of being unable to write in either language, I resumed writing poetry, now in English, in 2014. My first collection, Porous Land, has just been published by Spartan Press and is available on amazon and Barnes&Noble.  Visit me at or on facebook at

Hi all,

I have recorded a short video of me reading three poems from my book and thought I could share it here as well:

Have a good Sunday!

I watched the video, read a few of your poems and profile. You do have it going. I see your platform, branding, and tribe and do wish your journey all the growth and success.

Yes, Andrea. I wrote about it in my blog from yesterday, with a bit more info.

You are a very clear reader, Agnes. How nice to see and hear you that way. I am curious. WAs your poetry on a table in front of you. I would see you glance down from time and time and thought, she has a good memory to keep looking straight ahead so much. You should have a big poster in front of you for reading it without us knowing that. It will look even more impressive!!

Magicians don't tell how the trick is done ;) I had the poems pinned up just below the camera, slightly below eye level. When I perform live, I always memorize. For the recording, I could have done it from memory, but I wanted to make sure, so I had the printout as well.

A wonderful way to share your poetry Agnes, you certainly brought them to life. I have a feeling that this could catch on here on soup. Regards. Tom.

Thank you, Tom. I created the video for my social media campaign to promote my book, and then realized that maybe the Soupers might enjoy putting a face &voice to the screen name.
