Start The New Year Right

Erie, Pennsylvania - starts the year off with yours truly on January 3 @ 8:30 pm with an open mic and then my feature. If you’ve never been to Poets’ Hall then you are in for a treat. There is nothing like it in anywhere else. The best and possibly only venue dedicated to the art of poetry & spoken word anywhere in the universe on a weekly basis. Cee Williams has created a venue especially for artists who value an art-form that expresses emotion in a way that no other form can. Poetry, when read or heard, lets the reader or listener feel. You may be thinking that you’ve read books that make you sense a certain something – sad or happy, sick or well, motivated or numb, lustful or shameful and on and on. Well then, that’s poetry my friends. Poetry lets you be it, not just dream it. Oh there's room for music here as well.

Lakewood, Ohio – begins the year January 6 @ 7:30 pm with Dianne Borsenik & George Wallace. Dianne is a favorite. I’ve never known anyone who could use hors d'oeuvres to create an exquisite poem – but she sure as hell can and does. Dianne is extremely gifted. She will make you laugh, cry and . . . well just in awe of her talent.

It’s been a few years since I’ve heard George Wallace read in person and I cannot wait to hear him again. He is an internationally acclaimed poet whose wordplay is fun and intense. Some have said he is a poetry rock star. I tend to agree.

Wallace is also a feature at Mac’sBacks-Books On Coventry in Cleveland for NightBalletPress’s start to the New Year with Ed Luhrs and Russ Green, Saturday January 4, 2014 at 7pm.

restarts on January 15 @ 6 pm at a new venue. 1011 W 38th St, Erie, Pennsylvania 16509
