On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, at 7:00pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Bernadette McBride as the featured poet to World Above Free Poetry Night at Stockton University’s Noyes Arts Garage (2200 Fairmount Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401).

Our usual Open Mic, where participants read one poem that is less than two minutes long, will run from 7:00pm-8:00pm. Please arrive by 6:50pm to secure a spot. And this month, World Above founder Aubrey Rahab will be hosting the Open!!

The cafe should be open, and parking vouchers will be available.

After the break, participants will return to a free take-home writing prompt; then, Bernadette McBride will read.

Bernadette McBride, author of three full-length poetry collections and the forthcoming Everything Counts (Aldrich Press), has taught creative writing and literature at Temple University and is poetry editor for the Schuylkill Valley Journal. A three-time Pushcart Prize nominee, Pennsylvania county Poet Laureate, and poetry winner, second place, for the International Ray Bradbury Writing Award, her poems have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, including in the UK, Canada, and on PRI’s The Writer’s Almanac with Garrison Keillor.
