Stuff Going On for Poets

Local poets! Take note!!

River City Secrets
art6, 6 E. Broad St.
June 8, 7pm
The second Friday of every month we bring you a dose of poetry & rock n roll. Talented local wordsmiths kick off the night with featured readings, and the evening progresses with an open mic where all of the poetic persuasion are welcome to share a piece or two of their own. The night wouldn't be complete without the lyrical riffs of our rockstar-in-residence. Light refreshments are served for the whole, and your $5 at the door goes to support the gallery & our ongoing events there. Come out and get heard!

Poetry & Jazz Tasting
C'est Le Vin, 15 N. 17th St.
June 14, 6pm
On Thursday, June 14, we'll be back at local gallery and wine shop C'est Le Vin to sample the best of both new and established regional poets amidst the backdrop of live jazz and enticing wines. Randy Burton & co. of Super64 will be on hand to play some sets & lend their musical talents to the verses of any wordsmith so desiring. The whole is set off by C'est le Vin's enticing wine selection, gourmet delectables & gorgeous art exhibits. We "mini-feature" a wide array of wordsmiths from all experience & publication levels, giving them each 5 minutes to present a "taste" of what they do as poets, so shoot me an email ( if you'd like to be added to the list!
