There’s a lot of great stuff happening with the Mulberry Poets and Writers Association, an organization based in Scranton, PA that hosts workshops and readings a few times a year. I’ve been part of this organization for almost two years now and currently serve as a board member. I especially like being part of this group not only for its ability to put on solid, well-attended events, but also for its history. The organization has been around for over 30 years and is one of the oldest writing organizations in all of PA.
A reading we did at the Bowery Poetry Club in NYC about two weeks ago can now be seen online by clicking here. I can’t stress enough how much fun I had reading at this venue and how receptive the audience was to our work. I’ll again say that everyone from MWPA did a fantastic job reading.
Also, the poetry contest the organization runs is now open for submissions. Cash prizes are awarded to the top winners. The contest is open to current and former residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania. MWPA board members and previous first place winners are not allowed to enter. More details/submission guidelines can be found by clicking here.
There are some other events coming up, and the best way to find out when we have readings/workshops is to keep checking the website here.
