We met Sarah Elkins during a performance of excerpts of “How To Lose a Mountain” at the Lewis Theatre in Lewisburg, WV when we appeared on Trillium Performing Arts‘ spring concert. Sarah is a writer, and is known for her “flash poems”–poems composed to the specifications of the person who orders it for the price they offer. I bought a poem when I was in town for $10, and was fortunate enough to get two really beautiful poems. One is about my 500 mile walk, and one was written after Sarah saw the excerpt of “How To Lose a Mountain”. You can read more about Sarah and her work at www.sarahelkins.com.
