A Quick Reminder from Scott Owens about Poetry Day

Some of us from NCWN West went to Poetry Day at Catawba Valley college a couple of years ago and had a good time. I recommend it to anyone who wants to spend the day listening to good poetry. The Poetry Slam was fun, too. It is only a couple of hours from Hayesville, I think. See Scott's announcement below.

 Poetry Day is this Saturday from 9:30 to 3:00 at the Catawba Valley Community College Student Center in Hickory.

Maureen Sherbondy, Beth Copeland, and Malaika King Albrecht will each read from their Oscar Arnold Young Award winning books.  Other contest winners reading their work will include Tony Abbott, Coyla Barry, Carolyn York, and many more.  

Lenard Moore will be honored as the dedicatee of this year's Bay Leaves awards anthology, and the NC Poetry Society will be recognized for their contributions to the NC poetry community.

There will also be a live poetry slam with just a $5 entry fee and cash prizes.  Bring a poem of your own and join in.

I hope you can join us, and please let me know if you have any questions.
Scott Owens
