On Wednesday, October 26th at 7pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Sam Cha as featured reader to World Above Free Poetry Night at the Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University (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, featured poet Sam Cha will read.
Sam Cha received his MFA from UMass-Boston, where he was the 2011 and 2012 recipient of the Academy of American Poets Prize. In 2016, Damfino Press released a five poem chapbook of his work, and his poems have appeared or are forthcoming in apt, Anderbo, decomP, DIAGRAM, Cleaver, Printer’s Devil Review, Rattle Poets Respond, Memorious, Missouri Review Poem of the Week, and RHINO. He lives, writes, edits, and teaches in Cambridge, MA.
