image Yes, you read that right, Poets Speak Loud is returning on Monday , September 27 at McGeary’s (4 Clinton Square, Albany) in downtown Albany. As many of you know Tess Collins is coming on board at McGeary’s to manage the historic bar/restaurant in the beginning of September and one of her first orders of business is to bring poetry and spoken word back.

It has been way too long since we last gathered at the Lark Tavern to celebrate the vibrant community of poets and spoken word artists we have here in Albany and we cannot wait to restart our monthly open mic series.

Poets Speak Loud will continue to be hosted by Mary Panza on the last Monday of the month with signup starting at 7:00PM and the open mic beginning at 7:30PM. We will be having featured poets in the coming months, but September we are having an old-school poetry open mic. We have a brand new PA system and what better way to break it in than with the return of one of Albany’s most popular poetry and spoken word open mics.

We hope to see everyone there as begin the new chapter of Poets Speak Loud.
