On Wednesday, December 16th at 7pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Nancy Reddy as featured reader to World Above Free Poetry Night at Dante Hall (14 N. Mississippi 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 Nancy Reddy will read.
Questions about this series or to apply to be a featured poet, please contact Emari DiGiorgio: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to seeing all of you at Dante Hall on Wednesday, December 16th at 7pm.
