The Summer Writers Institute Reading Series, July 20
Readings have been going on up at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, home of the Writers Institute’s Summer Writing Program, since the end of June, but this is the first one I’ve been able to get to. It was sort of a random choice & also a chance for me...

<i>Third Thursday Poetry Night</i>, July 16
Although it was a Summer night it was not too hot to close the door to keep the sounds of the night-time Avenue out on the street. Before we began the open mic I invoked the Muse, the recently gone   Paul Weinman , iconic, quintessential poet of Albany, on...

<i>Live from the Living Room</i>, July 8
Well, sort of: we actually were in the “Garden Room” but close enough & no one seemed to mind. Our straight-friendly host, Don Levy , introduced the featured poet, East Nassau’s (& America’s) own, Bernadette Mayer . Bernadette began with an nod to the clas...

<i>Poets’ Cabaret II: A Show in Verse</i>, June 20
Gloucester is my 2nd favorite place on the Earth, as many of you know, & the Gloucester Writers Center is just one many reasons to come back here, again (& again). The Center, now in its 5th year, held a fund-raiser/celebration this night at the Maritime C...

<i>Live from the Living Room</i>, June 10
I love these urban readings. The Pride Center is just a half block from Lark St. in Albany, NY, where there are bars & restaurants to gather before or after a poetry reading. That’s exactly what we did, Don Levy (the host of Live From the Living Room ),  ...

<i>Poets of Earth, Water, Tree, & Sky</i>, July 10
& words — before & after the featured poet, Alan Catlin . The host/MC was Alan Casline (that’s not a typo). Now, I arrived when there were 4 or 5 poets signed up for the open mic, but the #1 slot was still open — reminded me of the old days at the QE2 — I ...

<i>Third Thursday Poetry Night</i>, June 18
Unfortunately our scheduled featured poet for this night, Mike Jurkovic , had to cancel, but the upside was that everyone in the open mic was the feature — poets could read twice as many poems as they normally could at this monthly reading at the Social Jus...

Pine Hollow Arboretum, June 12
Erroneously billed as a “Double Feature on a Summer Eve” it indeed was a "double feature," but not quite yet “Summer,” although the evening’s thunderstorm made it seem almost like Summer. The featured poets were Deborah Poe & Kita Shantiris , along with an...
