James Berkowitz will bare his poetic heart and soul reading/ performing live on the boulevard that inspired “Reaching for the Light of Day” and other works during his frequent night walks around Venice. His poem “The Inner Sun” published in the literary arts journal San Francisco Peace and Hope in 2015 was recently accepted into the San Francisco Public Library and The Special Collections of the Calfornia State Library. He’s also published in Edgar Allan Poet Journal #3 (2015) which is a collection of recognized Los Angelels poets dating back to the Beat Era in Venice.

Please join James as part of the VENICE ART CRAWL and WATCH globally via FACEBOOK LIVE Poetic Pop-Up as he takes the written word from the page and brings it to the street in theatrical fashion. He is grateful for your presence and support. Hashtag #veniceartcrawl
