Instead of the reading this month, consider ordering Martin Jude Farawell’s newly released Odd Boy from Sibling Rivalry Press.
On Wednesday, March 25, 2020, at 7:00pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Martin Jude Farawell 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, Martin Jude Farawell will read and sign books. Poet and playwright Martin Jude Farawell is the author of the poetry collection Odd Boy from Sibling Rivalry Press. His poems have also appeared in the chapbook Genesis: A Sequence of Poems, and in a wide variety of journals–Cortland Review, LIPS, Literary Review, Orion, Paterson Literary Review, Poetry East, Southern Review and Tiferet, among others–and in a number of anthologies, including Outsiders (Milkweed Editions) and The Traveler’s Vade Mecum (Red Hen Press). His plays have been produced in off-off-Broadway, college, community and regional theaters from South Africa to Los Angeles. A graduate of New York University’s Creative Writing Program, he has been the recipient of a writing fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and a frequent Pushcart Prize nominee. He directs the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival.
World Above 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.
