Rochester_NH_Public_Library
The Rochester Public Library has graciously offered to host the February Writers Night. We will meet in the Community Room at 6PM on February 1st.  We’ll have a double-feature that evening, myself and the very talented Jen Decker. Each will have 30 minutes of the night. There will be an open mic to follow, but we need to put the room back in order and vacate no later than 8:15PM.
I’m so excited to be featuring again in a few weeks at Pat O’Brien’s Writers Night. Some of the pieces I plan to include are: “Blood,” “Stories,” “44-47,” “11 Minutes,” “Forbidden Words,” “Book Burning,” “Frozen,” “Our Orange Ozymandias,” “Change,” “Dissent is Patriotic,” “Lump,” “0-9,” “10-19,” “20-29,”and “30-43.” I’ll have others ready if we have time.

Below you can see Pat’s intro for me and information about the event:

Hi everyone,
January’s Rochester Writers Night takes place Thursday, January 4th, 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.
