Phillip Levine, host of the Woodstock Poetry Society reading series, sent along the following information on this month’s event featuring Michael Platsky and Rees Davis. You will also notice that everyone will be meeting at the Mountain View Studio this time around rather than the Colony Cafe.
Note the NEW venue – we will NOT be at Colony (closed, for now). This month, we will be at Mountain View Studio (directly across from Colony, on the other side of the large opposite parking lot). We will see where we want to be as we move forward. We’ll be somewhere…
Poets Michael Platsky & Rees Davis will be the featured readers, along with an open mike when the Woodstock Poetry Society & Festival meets at Mountain View Studio, 20 Mountain View Avenue, on Saturday, February 9th at 2pm. Note: WPS&F meetings are held the 2nd Saturday of every month.
The readings will be hosted by Woodstock area poet Phillip X Levine. All meetings are free, open to the public, and include an open mike.

Michael hosts a weekly reading on Monday nights at the Harmony Cafe in Woodstock New York. He is always looking for good poets for featured readings at this event. Michael has lived in Woodstock for over twenty years and is happy to read on his home turf.

As an undergraduate he took poetry classes with Donald Finkel, fiction writing classes with Stanley Elkin, and philosophy classes with William H. Gass at Washington University in St. Louis.
