The Poets Speak Loud open mic series returns to McGeary’s on Monday, August 31, with featured poet Steven Minchin.
A somewhat self-taught Poet, Painter, Photographer and Video Artist Steven Minchin has been creating in the material world for over 2 decades. His work addresses, exalts and exploits madness with forays into the unseen, escape, and the little moments we all share that are trap doors to greater things. Shackled by Abstract Expressionism, The New York School, Dada and its post-modern descendants Steven creates with a release to chance and a hope that through your eyes and his works you can escape into something that teases a greater you.
In 2013 Steven joined the club, receiving his first Pushcart Prize nomination from Crack the Spine Literary Journal for the poem, Over Exposure. He has over 50 publication credits presenting more than 70 of his poems. Steven enjoys calling himself Steven and capturing things he’s seen almost as much as things he has not. To date he has quite a collection of both.
