On Wednesday, September 19, 2018, at 7:00pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Emily August 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, Emily August will read.
Emily August is an Assistant Professor of Literature at Stockton University, where she teaches courses in 19th-century British literature, medical humanities, and creative writing. Her poetry has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and has appeared or is forthcoming in Callaloo, Southern Humanities Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, Ninth Letter, Quarterly West, and elsewhere.
This series is made possible with support from The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University, Stockton’s Center for Community Engagement, and the Atlantic City Arts Foundation.
