April Poetry Hickory Reminder and Open Mic Readers

April 13, 2010

April’s Poetry Hickory, featuring Hickory’s own Tim Peeler reading from his new book, “Checking Out,” which consists of poems from his 7 years in the Hickory hotel industry, and Raleigh’s Harry Calhoun, is tonight at 6:30 at Taste Full Beans Coffeehouse.  We’ll begin with three Open Mic readers, who will be Helen Losse, editor of Dead Mule, Anderson O’Brien of Winston-Salem, and Fernand Chandonnet (yes, he is related to Ann Chandonnet, who has read at PH on several occasions.

Anyone interested in networking with other writers, learning about opportunities related to writing, or getting their work looked at by other writers is welcome to arrive at 5:00 for the NC Writers’ Network Writers’ Night Out.

As always, a big thank you to Taste Full Beans for hosting us and to Main Street Rag for sponsoring us.  On Poetry Hickory nights any purchase of books written by the featured writers merits a free book from the sponsors’ book shelf, which includes copies of the new Main Street Rag magazine (normally $8).

March Poetry Hickory Open Mic and Reminder

March 5, 2010

It almost snuck up on me, but next Tuesday, March 9, is the next Poetry Hickory.  Featured writers are Pedestal Magazine Founding Editor, John Amen, and Mike Smith, author of 3 collections of poetry, including the most technically remarkable book of poems I’ve seen in a very, very, very long time.  Both authors will have copies of their books available for purchase and are more than willing to make your copy a bit more special by signing it.

Open Mic readers are Nancy Posey, winner of the Poetic Asides 2009 November PAD Chapbook Challenge, and winner of two top 5 poems in the April 2009 PAD Challenge; John Womack, who has a new book of poems just out; and Justin Ganser.

As always, we’ll start at 6:30, but we will also have the NC Writers’ Network Writers’ Night Out at 5:00. This networking and critiquing group is open to any and all who wish to participate.  Those who usually attend include both beginning writers and well-established writers and journal editors.  It’s a great opportunity to gain insight towards beginning or furthering your occupation as a writer.

Attendance at Poetry Hickory and Writers’ Night Out is always free and is sponsored by Taste Full Beans Coffeehouse, Main Street Rag, and the North Carolina Writers’ Network.
