This purpose of this venue is to provide an encouraging and supportive environment
to seasoned poets, new poets, and songwriters.
Poetry is a solitary endeavor and songwriters often have limited opportunities to
share new material. This series offers poets, songwriters, and our community a
place to experience poetry and music together.
Our featured poet will read for approximately twenty minutes. We will
then take a refreshment break. After the break we have five minute
open mic poetry readings and five minute music performances. Please keep in mind
that our audience may include children and teens. Be sensitive to
this when choosing your materials. We request that there be no shouted remarks
during a reading or music presentation that could be distracting to poets,
musicians, or the audience.
Each featured poet will be offered a basket of books to select one book as our
gift to them. We will have one free door prize. The door prize winner will be
offered the basket and allowed to select one book as a gift.
Authors and musicians may have their books or music CDs available for
purchase. Authors and musicians must have sellerís permits and are responsible
for applying appropriate sales tax.
