April Is National Poetry Month: Center For Inquiry Apr. 6

Center For Inquiry

National Poetry Month is a month-long, celebration of poetry to widen the attention of individuals and the media to the art of poetry, to living poets, to poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range. Since 1999, National Poetry Month has been celebrated internationally but in different months. In America and Canada, it is celebrated every April.  

The purpose is to promote the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry throughout the world and to give fresh recognition to national, regional and international poetry movements.

On Wednesday, April 6 in Amherst New York, at the Center for Inquiry/Just Buffalo Literary Cafe, in honor of National Poetry Month there will be an open reading with MORE than 10 available slots. This venue is hosted by Perry Nicholas. The evening begins at 7:30pm. This evening will be different and exciting. A One and One Open Reading. Read one of your favorite works then read one of your own. This honors those before us, as well as ourselves as poets and writers. 

The Center for Inquiry is located at 1310 Sweet Home Road in Amherst. It is free and open to the public, a favorable venue with fresh faces and new ideas.

Perry states, "The idea of connection here is meant to be interpreted very loosely. The intent is not that the poems have to be strictly related, but simply that you share a poet you enjoy reading and a poem of your own. Ultimately, who can say how your creative process works?"

Join us to celebrate the written and spoken word.
