Estoy Aqui – I am Here
This pandemic has changed us. Uncertainty exists. We asked writers, poets, artists, performers, musicians, and the creative community to check in with us by sharing their thoughts, fears, success, beliefs, outrage, politics, creativity, etc. through recordings. Our contributors respond with poetry, short stories, music, or monologues, that capture the pain, humor, angst, joy, frustration, optimism, of their current mood.
WACO PORTER has lived in the Kansas City area for 20 years. Born in Galveston, Texas, he served in the military and traveled widely. He now proudly calls KC home. Porter recently published his first book of poetry, Total Eclipse. He also enjoys writing short stories, working out, and hanging out with his wife, three daughters, and family dog. He serves as board vice president of Jump Start Art KC. Porter currently serves in the field of physical therapy.
