I fell in love with the poetry of Samuel Peralta back in 2009, when he founded a unique literary project called Semaphore. In the early days of the social network Twitter, while others streamed status updates, Samuel Peralta was one of the first to stream original poetry as @Semaphore. The project became an online phenomenon, with over four million downloads of 300+ poems, acclaimed for their emotive impact and craftsmanship.
As a gift/apologies to those of you who tuned in last week and were disappointed with the technical difficulties we encountered, Sam is giving away 5 ebooks of his poems during tonight's show. All you have to do is email me while you're listening and I'll draw your name from random winners: firstname.lastname@example.org.
