On December 3, at 7PM, Words and Images presents a euphoric explosion of words and love, bringing together local poets and student writers for an evening of excitement, to take place at the North Star Cafe, 222 Congress St., Portland, Maine. This is event is free and open to the public.
The evening’s featured poets will be Melissa Crowe (author of “Cirque du Creve-Cur (Circus of Heartbreak),” whose work has appeared in Calyx, Seneca Review, and The Atlanta Review), and Layla Carroll (a recent graduate of the prestigious Warren Wilson MFA program). They will be followed by a slew of the best and brightest undergraduate writers from the University of Southern Maine, including Words and Images staff members Jill Jacobs, Caroline O’Connor-Thomas, and Aubin Thomas. After this will be an hour of open mic, so that everyone can get involved. Bring your best work, and look for the sign-up sheet when you come in!
