On Wednesday, April 17, 2019, at 7:00pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Nomi Stone to 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-7:45pm. 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 penned by Barbara Daniels.
Then, Nomi Stone will read and sign books.
