On Thursday, July 28, New World Writers Night presents a group feature from The Goat Hill Poets.
The Goat Hill Poets is a critique group which has been meeting for nearly a decade. Its members come together occasionally for group readings. This reading will include all six members of the group, along with a bonus reader from the Woodstock-Mayapple Writers’ Retreat.
Readings take place at New World Home Cooking, 1411 Route 212, between Woodstock and Saugerties. This reading will begin promptly at 7, so please arrive by 6:30 for dinner. Readings include an open mic (5 minute limit) which can be poetry or prose. No admission charge; there is a voluntary collection for the writers. Attendees who wish to have dinner before the reading can call 845-246-0900 for reservations.
