On Wednesday, September 23rd at 7pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Emma Bolden as featured reader to World Above Free Poetry Night at the Noyes Arts Garage (2200 Fairmount Ave., Atlantic City, NJ 08401).
The evening starts with the usual Open Mic, where participants read one poem that is less than two minutes long. The break will occur just before 8pm, and participants will return to a free take-home writing prompt, introduced by the host or the prompt’s author. Then, featured poet Emma Bolden will read.
