January Virtual "Open Readings"

Welcome to our January 2021 Shelter-In-Place Video "Open Reading". A huge thanks is due to all the folks who have participated either as audience or as featured readers in our Cholla Needles Zoom Shelter-In-Place readings. 

There's no way I thought this Covid experience (first advertised as a flu) was going to last this long. Because it's a tough cookie that plans to create havoc with our live events for some more months into the future, I am pleased that we are able to have these video experiences to share with each other. I can honestly say hearing your voices electronically is keeping me sane. 

If you have a video you'd like to share, please - send me a note & let me know. We consider this a community page, and is not limited to only our "featured readers". This spot is here to help us experience the love of great writing until we can meet together in one spot again.

So, if you are browsing our pages, we consider YOU a part of our family and you are welcome to become part of our Shelter-In-Place video pages. Simply contact us at editor@chollaneedles.com & ask how to get your videos posted on our pages. You can also use this address to send us your poetry, short stories, essays, and art for publication in our monthly magazine.
