We have had to postpone Lynne Knight's reading due to extenuating circumstances but will try again. Since this is short notice, we decided to do APRIL in OCTOBER, always a favorite. Everyone who attends may read two poems, one of their own and one of a favorite poet. Even though Bob Hicok is still my favorite poet, I really want to read a poem by Sherman Alexie this time. I know we will hear a lot of good poetry from our favorite poets, both here and there.

An informal gathering for collaborating with fellow poets about works in progress, that’s what Poets@Play is all about. We alternate between writing and sharing our works in progress. This is not a workshop, but rather a playhouse – some starter ideas and a comfortable place to play with words.
