Bring a chair, some food, beverages, and of course poems.

Start: November 7, 2020 2:00 pm
End: November 7, 2020 3:30 pm

October 8, 2020 Doppleganger At the Exchange

Stop by The Exchange from September  8, 2020 onward  -

  • view the artwork on display.
  • Be inspired, write a poem, and submit the poem to be displayed at the Exchange later in the month.
  • Another option is to submit artwork on the theme; which means getting it done before September 5, 2020 for the longest viewing time.

Join us at The Exchange for a reading of the poems on October 8, 2020 at 7:30 pm.

The artwork theme will be Doppleganger  [an apparition or double of  living person].

There is a maximum limit of 15 people for the reading; social distance is the limiting factor.  

However, the reading will live-streamed via Facebook for more folks to view and hear.
