Hey poets, performers, and storytellers…
I’ve been organizing and hosting Poetry Aloud for over two years now in Lancaster city at The Ware Center. This spring we’ll be holding the event on April 4th at 6:30pm (Click here to view the Facebook Event page!) We’ve had the pleasure of seeing incredible spoken word poets such as Anis Mojgani and Andrea Gibson in 2013. This year, we’ve got Jon Sands, a poet from NYC who’s really carved out a specific style of the genre for himself. He’s an incredible and unique performer said to, “take absolute possession of the room,” when he performs.
Most importantly, Poetry Aloud has given over 50 local writers of all ages and experience-levels a chance to show their work during the open readings. Check out some of the performances from last fall:
We have room for about 12 open mic performers. Your spot would be 2-3 minutes. Please email me directly @ tylerstevenbarton AT gmail DOT com if you’re interested!
