On Wednesday, June 28th at 7pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Roberto Carlos Garcia as the featured poet to World Above Free Poetry Night at Stockton University’s Noyes Arts Garage (2200 Fairmount 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, Roberto Carlos Garcia will read.
Roberto Carlos Garcia’s book, Melancolía, is available from Červená Barva Press. His poems and prose have appeared or are forthcoming in The New Engagement, Public Pool, Stillwater Review, Gawker, Barrelhouse, Tuesday: An Art Project, The Acentos Review, Lunch Ticket, and many others. He is the founder of Get Fresh Books, LLC, a cooperative press. A native New Yorker, Roberto holds an MFA in Poetry and Poetry in Translation, and he has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
