This #NaPoMo is going to be fabulous in the River City! In addition to all our regular programming, we’re kicking the celebrations off with a series of THREE ekphrastic performances by members of our community at the Institute for Contemporary Art on April 5-6. The very next week, we’re throwing a bash at the Patrick Henry Pub for the launch of our first-ever anthology, Lingering in the Margins! Featuring work by over fifty poets & published locally by Chop Suey Books, this collection has been more than two years in the making. In case you can’t come party with us at the launch on April 9, you can catch readings by some of our contributors later in the month as part of the RVA LitCrawl on April 20, at Firehouse on April 23, or at our National Poetry Month finale at Blue Bee Cider on April 28. And of course we’ll have plenty of open mic and other reading opportunities as part of all these poetic shenanigans… just check out our “Upcoming Events” page for details!
