On Wednesday, September 28th at 7pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Naomi Extra 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 Naomi Extra will read.
Naomi Extra is a freelance writer, poet, and doctoral student in American Studies at Rutgers University-Newark. Naomi is also a Cave Canem fellow and contributing writer to the feminist publication Weird Sister. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in The Feminist Wire, Day One, Bitch, Racialicious, Apogee Journal, The Paterson Literary Review, and elsewhere.
