DVOn Wednesday, April 20th at 7pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Donna Vorreyer as featured reader to World Above Free Poetry Night at Stockton University’s Dante Hall.

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 Donna Vorreyer will read.

Donna Vorreyer is the author of Every Love Story is an Apocalypse Story (Sundress Publications, 2016) and A House of Many Windows (Sundress Publications, 2013), as well as seven chapbooks, most recently Encantado, a collaboration with artist Matt Kish from Redbird Chapbooks. She has received a residency from the Kimmel-Harding-Nelson Center for the Arts in Nebraska and serves as the reviews editor for Stirring: A Literary Collection. She has only four years left until retirement from her 30 plus years of teaching middle school in the Chicago suburbs, and sometimes it shows.

Please invite your friends to this event, join and share it on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/sjpoets), and even link our website (http://www.sjpoets.wordpress.com/) to your social media.
