The event formerly known as Poetry Slam with Bobby Miller has been revamped with a new format. Poetry Night is now a non-competitive, free-form reading event where poets and aspiring poets have an opportunity to showcase their original poetry.

The featured guest for this event will be Belle Fox-Martin.  Belle lives in Glendale, also known as the fashionable west side of Stockbridge, with her wife and three dogs. She has been a UCC minister, gallery owner, theater producer, Substance Abuse Specialist, less than fine artist, wind energy surveyor an impromptu instillation artist and a very unskilled bartender. Her poetry and micro stories have found their way into The Christian Science Monitor, Sojourners, The Berkshire Edge, Christianity and the Arts as well as many other literary publications. Stone Pears and her previous collection, Misplaced Day, are available through Amazon.

FREE with a suggested donation of $10 to cover costs. Bring your friends and invite others to join!

Participants are encouraged to bring up to three poems to read or perform and arrive at 6:45 to put their names on a list.
