Jeremy Halinen – A Brief History of Disbelief

By July 5, 2010 October 13th, 2012 No Comments

Jeremy's book "What Other Choice" is currently available in select locations in Seattle and Tacoma

In October, I was asked my friend Professor Bill Kupinse to interview a the winner of Exquisite Disarray‘s First Book Poetry Contest. Exquisite Disarray is a publishing company founding in Tacoma a couple years ago of which Bill is the president. In asking me to interview the winner, Jeremy Halinen, Bill sent over Jeremy’s manuscript to aid me in developing interview questions.  Often when I peruse the poetry books over at Elliott Bay Bookstore, I am bored by the third poem, but in looking at Jeremy’s manuscript, to my surprise, I was pulled through the entire document.

In addition to filming an interview I was please to be able to work with Jeremy to put together a short performance piece of his poem “A Brief History of Disbelief” which I have shared below. Enjoy.
