New Venue for Coffee with the Poets and Writers - Clay County, NC

Coffee with the Poets and Writers has met at Blue Mountain Restaurant in  Murphy for the past two years. Beginning in March, 2015, this event will meet at Joe's Trading Post and Coffee Shop, 32 Main Street, Hayesville, NC. Joe Powell is owner of the coffee shop. We met at this location when it was  Cafe Touche and run by Liz. The seating is different now and probably will be better for our group. This event is open to  the public and everyone is invited to read a couple of  poems or a prose piece of around 1,000 words,.

The only food sold at Joe's will be his fine varied brands of coffee, soft drinks, tea and a few snack items. He will be open to  the public while we meet. Please pass this change on to anyone who would like to join us on the second Wednesday of each month at 10:30 a.m.

We are pleased that Coffee with the Poets and Writers, sponsored by NCWN West, was founded  in 2007 and has continued with a loyal following ever since.

We will NOT MEET in January or February.
Our featured reader in March will be Bob Grove, well-known man of many talents from Brasstown, NC.
To learn more about reading at Coffee with the Poets and Writers contact Glenda Beall, or call 828-389-4441.
