Riverfront Readings feature local and regional writers and are held regularly at The Writers Place on the second Friday of each month. This month, we feature poets William Peck and Piper Abernathy.
William Peck is the owner of MetaphorMedia, a Kansas City-based videography company. He has been a member of Kansas City’s community of poets for more than 20 years. He routinely attends, hosts and performs at local poetry reading events, and much of his video work is devoted to furthering the arts, particularly the literary arts.
Piper Abernathy is a poet and educator who taught high school locally for nine years. Formerly, she served as regional coordinator for Poetry Out Loud and an adjunct instructor for Penn Valley Community College. Her poetry can be found in Pleiades, Mid-American Review, Memorious, and I-70 Review.
