All-Terrain Poetry

1,159Total Views

Live readings from Pocahontas County

All-Terrain best describes the territory where poetry lives. The healing power of self-talk is universal. To celebrate April as national Poetry Month both TS Eliot – who said poetry is a raid on the inarticulate – and Lousie McNeill – who spoke of a place called solid – were the inspiration for the event. Some of the night’s proceeds will help High Rocks Academy writing program to continue serving young writers in Pocahontas County and beyond.

Featured poets for the evening will be: Wolf Knight, Kirk Judd, Mary Moore McLaughlin, Uncle Edward Wabbit, Doug VanGundy, Megan Moriarty, Margaret Baker, Lynmarie Knight and Neal Krakover.

There will also be an Open Mic for those who want to share their work and words.

The event will be held Friday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pocahontas County Opera House

Tickets will be $3 at the door
