Staci Bell will read at Coffee with the Poets and Writers August 13

Each month the North Carolina Writers’ Network West sponsors Coffee with the Poets and Writers and invites the public to attend. Staci Lynn Bell, accomplished writer, will be featured on Wednesday, August 13, 10:30 a.m. at Blue Mountain Coffee and Grill located at the intersection of Highway 64 and Highway 141 in Cherokee County, NC.

Bell began writing commercials, editorials and public service announcements for TV and radio. In 1988 her environmental essay won statewide acclaim in Florida. More recently her short stories and nonfiction have been published in the online journal, 234, and in Show Dog Magazine. Her poetry has been published in Wild Goose Poetry Review, a popular online literary journal.

For twenty-five years, Staci Bell worked in radio and television as a broadcaster, host and emcee for numerous events and concerts. Originally from Chicago, today Bell lives in Murphy, NC with her husband and three dogs. She is a member of NCWN West and the Ridgeline Literary Alliance.

An Open Mic session follows the featured reader, and anyone who brings an original short story or personal essay or poem, is invited to sign up to read. This event is open to all who like poetry and enjoy short prose whether or not they are a writer. Visitors are also invited to join the writers as they  pull tables together and eat lunch. A drawing is held for door prizes.

Carole on left, Karen on right at JCCFS
Carole Thompson, Netwest Rep for Georgia and Karen Holmes, Netwest News volunteer editor and publisher, kept the audience applauding last Thursday evening at the John C. Campbell Folk School for the monthly reading, Poets and Writers Reading Poems and Stories. Karen, who has been influenced by some of the poets she has seen in Atlanta, showed us an example of  performance poetry which had everyone laughing out loud.


Carole is always appealing to the audience with her casual ease and her variety of serious and light-hearted work.

This reading takes place with two members of NCWN West featured most months on the third Thursday.
