Ms. Phoenix was an active participant in the SLCC (Second Life Community Convention) in San Francisco, 2009 where she attended mix media events and shared her poetry live with attendees.

Persephone Phoenix has performed in many SL theatre productions, including The Bacchae, Tempest, and In the Pink. She is a member of Avatar Repertory Theatre and performs her own poetry each Sunday night at the Blue Angel Poets’ Dive, the original and oldest running literary community in Second Life™.

In 2009 Persephone Phoenix co-published an anthology (with British writer Huckleberry Hax)  of poetry which featured submissions from some of Second Life’s most talented writers.  The Anthology can be purchased online via LuLu  here.

Her writing style?  Insightful.  Her involvement? Inspiring.
