One of our scheduled featured writers for the October 8 Poetry Hickory has had to cancel, but one of our upcoming features, Michael Diebert, editor of The Chattahoochee Review, has agreed to move his appearance up to fill in. Diebert will also teach a workshop prior to the reading. I reviewed Diebert’s most recent collection, Life Outside the Set, in the summer issue of Wild Goose Poetry Review (http://wildgoosepoetryreview.wordpress.com/2013/08/15/scott-owens-review-of-michael-dieberts-life-outside-the-set/).
I’ll have more details on the nature of the workshop shortly, but I can tell you that the workshop will begin at 4:00 and will cost just $10 per participant. Please let me know as soon as possible if you’d like to participate in the workshop, as space is limited. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 828-234-4266 to hold a spot.
The reading will begin at 5:30 and will also include Poetry Hickory favorite, Jessie Carty. The featured readings will be followed by an Open Mic. Be one of the first ten to sign up at Taste Full Beans Coffeehouse in downtown Hickory by 5:30 that night to be included in the Open Mic (3 minutes each).
