  1. Hello, Amy,

    I just now saw your calendar of events on Wompos and want to let you know about a reading this coming week that is a part of the monthly North Carolina Poetry Society Reading Series at McIntyre’s Fine Books, Fearrington Village, Pittsboro, NC. I hope you’ll list it on your calendar. We’ll appreciate your help in getting the word out. The details about the reading are listed on my blog: susanmeyers.blogspot.com

    Here they are:

    Poetry Reading — Linda Annas Ferguson & Susan Meyers
    Thursday, Jul. 23
    7 p.m.
    McIntyre’s Fine Books
    2000 Fearrington Village Center
    Pittsboro, NC 27312
    (off 15/501 just south of Chapel Hill and north of Pittsboro)
    Sponsored by the NC Poetry Society
    Free & open to the public
    Book signing to follow the reading

    The reading series, featuring poets from the North Carolina Poetry Society, is presented monthly at McIntyre’s Fine Books in Fearrington Village. The contact person for the whole series is Sara Claytor: sclaytor@nc.rr.com

    Readings coming up:

    July 23 — Linda Annas Ferguson & Susan Meyers
    August 27 — Gail Peck & Barbara Presnell
    September 24 — Terri Erickson & Scott Owens

  2. Please add Rochester, New York to your listing. We have Writers and Books here, wab.org, with many readings, classes and events related to poetry.

    Also, my husband, and fellow poet/(attorney) Lou Faber and I host a monthly Open Mic at =Grounds Coffee Shop, 250 South Avenue at Caroline Street in Rochester, NY. The next one is August 12th, 2009 7 – 9 PM. All are welcome.
    We read in a round-robin fashion, which keeps the energy going. One person, one poem, next person, one poem, , next, next, until we run out of poems and people.

  3. best place to reach is facebook lewell jones or sylvia pfeiffer, we are looking for poetry events in orlando spoken word or neo soul. we are fairly new to area and are originally fron chicago area. my fiance sylvia was very involved with shows and events in chicago are, she was known as sylvia soul and full circle entertainment’ look forward to hearing from you.
