I’m so excited to be featuring again next week! This time I’ll be back at Pat O’Brien’s Writers Night. Some of the pieces I plan to include are: “Our Orange Ozymandias,” “Thankful,” “She Sits in the Wings,” “War Weary,” “Oracle,” “Goodbye,” and “Eating Away at Myself.” I’ll have couple others ready if we have time.
Below you can see Pat’s intro for me and information about the event.
I hope you all had a merry Christmas, and look forward to a happy and healthy new year.
January’s Rochester Writers Night takes place next Thursday, January 5th, at Mel Flanagan”s Irish Pub and Cafe at 50 North Main St. in Rochester NH. Writers are invited to perform their original poetry, prose or music. Sign-ups begin on site at 6 PM. Our feature begins at 6:15, and then we take a short break, followed by the open mic portion of our program. There is a five minute limit per participant, with extra rounds if time allows. Mel provides a sound system, and complimentary cookies and coffee/tea for participants. She also offers a full menu for those who would like heartier fare. The evening is usually over by 8 PM, but a music session has been known to break out!
January’s feature poet is Kyle Leach. Kyle has previously featured for Rochester Writers Night, and has also featured at the Rochester Public Library poetry event. His work is thoughtful, provocative, and dramatic. Drawing from personal experience and his social and political commitments, Kyle presents with fearless and sometimes raw emotion. He will pull you in, and challenge any apathy you may harbor. His poetry ranges from tender to angry, from sweet to scathing, and always promises to be one of the best features of the year.
This feature poet is not to be missed! Please join us for a wonderful evening of writing.
PS: Please watch for cancellations due to weather. I will email by 2 PM if there we cancel. You can also call Mel’s at 603 332-6357 for any last minute changes.
