Poetry Open Mic & Launch of Charlotte Lit

February 27, 2016–A good poetry open mic happened on Wednesday, February 24th, at Waterbean Coffee in Huntersville, NC. Featured poets were Beth Ann Cagle and Anne Kaylor. One nice turn of phrase, from Ms. Kaylor’s latest book, Unwilling to Laugh Alone, was “…waiting for life to grow.” I enjoyed listening to the poems from both features. Also, I read two of my poems during the open mic section of the night.

In addition to this event, the launch of the Charlotte Center for Literary Arts, or Charlotte Lit, happened on Friday, February 19th, in The Light Factory gallery in Charlotte, NC. Poet Linda Pastan read her work as the feature of the night. She was the only poet to read, and I liked her work.

Good luck Charlotte Lit!
