The Poets Speak Loud open mic series continues at McGeary’s in downtown Albany on Monday, August 26, with featured reader Michael Thomas-Newton.
Michael Thomas-Newton is the author of a half dozen unpublished chapbooks as well as some un-staged one-act plays. Grappling with insecurities and other demons he infrequently performs poetry to express what he hopes the world will hear: There are miracles in every breath you take and possibilities of healing and redemption with every scar you kiss and share.
Poets Speak Loud is Albany Poets’ long-running monthly open mic for poetry and spoken word with a featured poet hosted by local poet Mary Panza at McGeary’s (4 Clinton Square) in downtown Albany on the last Monday of each and every month.
Sign-up for the open mic is 7:00 pm, we start at 8 pm.
