Featured poets include Ailecia Ruscin, Amy Bertrand, Amy Nixon Karsmizki, Olive Sullivan, Julie Unruh, and Jane Live. Other poets attending the event are welcome to share their work. Read our feature on Lawrence area poets.
From the organizer: I am organizing an "Emerging Voices" reading at the Percolator as part of National Poetry Month. My idea is to feature folks who are new to writing and reading their poetry and/or haven't had a reading of their own in Lawrence and/or don't have enough material to do a reading of their own, but want to start sharing their work. I would like to have several people scheduled to read, but also offer nonscheduled people a chance to read at the end.
I definitely want this to be a positive and supportive atmosphere for folks new to reading their work.
If you or anyone you know fits the above description and wants to read at this event, please contact me at cajungal [at] Safe-mail [dot] net. Of course, the readers need an audience, so please plan to attend.
