Share Your Work at This Year’s Open Mic Poetry Reading on Tuesday, April 24

Calling all poetry enthusiasts!

You’re invited to share your work at this year’s Open Mic Poetry Reading on Tuesday, Apr. 24, at 12:00 p.m. in the Speakers’ Corner.  Hosted in partnership with the English Department, this annual event provides a fun and relaxed forum for students, faculty, staff and others to read their own poetry and listen to the work of their peers.  It also serves as the release party for the new issue of Arthology, one of the University’s student-produced art and literary magazine.

You are encouraged to arrive promptly to sign up for a spot on the reading list or just to get a good seat for listening to the readings.

The reading will feature contestants for theSenior Class Poet award, given by the English Department every spring. The following Senior Class Poet entries are posted around the Library: “The modern conception of zero” by Jonathan De Martino, “St. Paul’s Cathedral, London” by Meghan Farley, “The Angel of 30th Street Station” by Sarah Zinn, “Flushed” by Nicole Battisti, “The father, the father!” by Daniel Pepe, “debtor” by Theresa Donohoe, “A Sunday” by Joseph Bagnasco, “Building Houses” by J.D. Hall, an excerpt from “The Almost” by Melanie Romero, “Crow Creek Reservation, midnight” by Emma DelVecchio, “Nothing’s Planted…” by Ashley Dunbar and “In the wrong place at the wrong time” by Julianna Brown.

The reading, which is free and open to the public, is timed to coincide with National Poetry Month, celebrated across the country every April.  It is organized by Lisa Sewell, PhD, Gerald Dierkes, Joanne Quinn, Judy Olsen and Gina McFadden Duffy.

Refreshments will be served.
