We are continuing our virtual poetry readings through the fall and the next event is next Sunday afternoon. Join on October 11 at 3:00 pm with Zoom into Poetry with Doug Holder.
Holder was our judge for our 2020 Annual Poetry Contest: The Frank O’Hara Prize. In a normal year we would have enjoyed hearing him read at a Winners’ Reading late in September. Alas, this is far from a normal year and so we’re taking the opportunity to hear him read via Zoom.
To join the event, please visit the Zoom registration page and fill in the form. A meeting link will be e-mailed to you.
