Poetry, Prompts, and Paninis: My Latest Vlog Challenge!

I love poetry! I hate poetry sometimes too. I always hate cooking.

My first quarter on YouTube was wild! I’m so grateful for all your support and willingness to humor me, truly.

And I’m ecstatic to start my second quarter with another challenge, one that’s somehow become more challenging than last quarter’s challenge, when I wrote an entire 50,000 word collection in 10 days–

In honor of National Poetry Month, I’ve promised to share a poetry collection every weekday, as well as a writing prompt and recipe inspired by that collection.

Each week’s featured titles form a spine poem! The first week was incredibly fun. We looked at American Sonnets for My Past and Future Assassin by Terrance Hayes, Incendiary Art by Patricia Smith, A Fortune For Your Disaster by Hanif Abdurraqib, If They Come For Us by Fatimah Asghar, and Girls That Never Die by Safia Elhillo.

And we made imitation McDonald’s apple pies, elevated grilled cheese paninis (for my Ramadan birthday!), digital cheeseboards, aloo keema, and apple Nutella rolls. Some recipes were more successful than others.

Here’s the original announcement video for the challenge:

And here’s a link to the playlist, where you can find all the week one videos!

I’m so grateful to be writing among these words and poets, and I’m so excited to reveal my remaining features.

The fun continues next week! And the week after that, and the week after that.
