South Jersey Poets would like to wish you a Happy Holidays.  December’s World Above: Open Mic Poetry night proved to be an amazing showcase of local talent.  With an all-star cast on the Open Mic followed by featured poet Christine Salvatore-Smith, Dante Hall served its purpose as a refuge for artists in Atlantic City.  Over 40 people were in attendance this month with 18 poets reading their original work.



We look forward to finding out what 2013 will bring to the South Jersey poets.  The prospects of this group continuing to grow and expand in the new year are endless.  We hope to create an anthology to promote our poetry, produce videos of poets reading, and potentially to plan larger poetry events in the coming year.

Our next World Above: Open Mic Poetry night will be held on Wed, Jan 23rd.  Featured Poet To Be Announced.  Come and potentially see one of our regular poets who are all significant in their own right & treasures to the art of poetry:
Ernie Schell, Mary Artley Werner, Ed Gerhardt, Diane Shapiro, Emily VanDuyne, MaryLisa DeDomenicis, Susan Cavanaugh, Jackie Shelley, Peter Murphy, Cole Eubanks, Jole Dias-Porter, Bruce Williams, Emari DiGiorgio, Rich Russell, Paul Victor Williams and more.
