New reading series

This weekend, the Mulberry Poets and Writers Association hosted a reading at the Vintage Theater in downtown Scranton. While emcing the event, I met a local poet, Charles O’Donnell, who told me about a new reading series starting in Wilkes-Barre.  It will be held the third Friday of every month at 6 p.m. at the Art Seen Gallery, 21 Public Square.

Writers are encouraged to share original work, as well as a poem or two by another writer. I like the fact these guys want expose the public to other poets. When I do readings, I often read a poem or two by another writer, just to share poets I love with other folks.

So, if you’re looking for something to do this weekend, why not come to the reading?
