Event: New Millennium Poetry at Sweetwaters
Place: Sweetwaters Downtown, corner of W. Washington St. & Ashley
Date: Tuesday, May 17, 2011
Time: 7-8:30 pm
May brings us fresh flowers, fresh wind & weather, and two fresh new voices from the west side of the state– Jordan Rickard and Paloma Clohossey are our features this month. They have been studying with Diane Seuss, our fabulous feature from back in December, in Kalamazoo College’s Creative Writing Program and will be graduating in June. They share a talent for musical language, striking images, and their work, in radically different ways, explores the relationship between people and places, at home and abroad. Jordan was raised in Wichita, KS and his most recent series of poems tries to capture the effect of the American cowboy on modern society. Paloma lived in Kenya and brings us poems about her experience of African life.
Open mic is first come first serve, so come a little early to guarantee a spot. We look forward to seeing you on the 17th!
