Not all poems want to live inside a book. Dear Someone Somewhere is a bite-sized, audio-letters style podcast. It is also my fourth book of poems and prose. Why? Because we need new paradigms in literature • Dear Someone Somewhere is a sonic exhibition in using the voice of the poem to process, salve, and offer pause when life is at 300-miles per hour. I’m here to attest that writing creatively is a good path in repairing, reclaiming, and restoring from personal struggles. Dear Someone Somewhere is also an invitation for you to consider writing about events in your life where you don’t have words for and start your own podcast about it! +++++ Good Morning Sam (Sam Roxas-Chua 姚) is the author of Saying Your Name Three Times Underwater, Echolalia in Script, and Fawn Language. His poems, artworks, and asemic writings have appeared in journals including Narrative, December Magazine, Cream City Review and an essay/review of his two recent books appears in the Georgia Review and Rhino Poetry. His poetry sequence Diary of Collected Summers was awarded the Missouri Review’s Miller Audio Prize and most recently he was interviewed by Gulf Coast Journal. In his writing process, Sam is interested in discovering the invisible poem.+++++ Good Morning Sam is a quadrilingual speaker and a domestic transracial, transcultural adoptee. He is a maker open to what happens in the ineffable interstices, the between. Sam has exhibited his visual works and read for PEN International Philippines and at the Performatura literature and arts festival at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Current 2021-2022 projects include an 8-week artists/writer in residence at Portland Chinatown Museum and a visiting guest writer in Portland State University in February 2022.
