Tomorrow night is the night we all have been waiting for…the return of Poets Speak Loud! It has been five months since the last time we all got together at the Lark Tavern and on Monday, September 27 we are hoping that everyone will be a part of the launch of the new Poets Speak Loud at McGeary’s.

For the first month back we are having an Old School Open Mic for poetry and spoken word hosted by Mary Panza. Anyone who wants to share their work can sign up starting at 7:00PM.

Over the years we have had some great poets as features such as Emily Gonzalez, The Poet Essence, Cheryl A. Rice, Michael Eck, Mother Judge, Rich Tomasulo, Alan Catlin, A.C. Everson, Jil Hanifan, Nicole Peyrafitte, R.M. Engelhardt, Dain Brammage, Amanda Rose, Josh McIntyre, Philip Levine, Rachael Zitomer, Pierre Joris, Will Nixon, Robert Milby, John Weiler, Carol Graser, and Jason Crane. Next month we are bringing back the tradition with a very special featured poet.

Poets Speak Loud happens on the last Monday of each and every month at McGeary’s (4 Clinton Square, Albany). Sign up begins at 7:00PM with the poetry starting at 7:30PM.
