Calling all poets! Join us for a new poetry open mic every second Sunday of the month. It's open to all poets, 18 and over. We'll follow a round-robin format, with a featured reader to begin. You may bring more than one poem to read.

Her poetry has appeared in Crab Orchard Review, The Tishman Review, Folio, Spoon River Poetry Review, South Carolina Review, Midwest Quarterly, Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, Rhino, The Atlanta Review, and anthologized in Villanelles (ed.
