On Wednesday, August 15, 2018, at 7:00pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Shamar Hill 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 in the Open.

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

Shamar Hill, a Cave Canem Fellow, is the recipient of numerous awards, including a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship and a scholarship from Fine Arts Work Center. He has been published or has work forthcoming in: Washington Square Review, Day One, Southern Humanities Review, Kenyon Review Online, and Vinyl. He is working on his first poetry collection, Photographs of an Imagined Childhood, and a memoir, In Defiance of All True Things.

This series is made possible with support from The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University, Stockton University’s Center for Community Engagement, and the Atlantic City Arts Foundation.
