Spring into Poetry this April!


Robert Frost is quoted in saying, “I have never started a poem yet whose end I knew. Writing a poem is discovering.” We invite you to “spring into poetry” this April and discover new ideas and thoughts. Poetry nights will be held in both Pocahontas and Greenbrier Counties.

all terrain poetry

Pocahontas County Opera House is celebrating April (national Poetry Month) with the All Terrain Poetry Night on Friday, April 4th at 7:30pm. “All Terrain” was used to name this event because it best describes the terrority where poetry lives, as the events organizers tell us. There will be an open mic with several writers, including LBSPY’s Halfbaked n’ Bothered columnist, Margaret Baker. Other featured poets are: Wolf Knight, Kirk Judd, Mary Moore McLaughlin, Uncle Edward Wabbit, Doug VanGundy, Megan Moriarty, Lynmarie Knight, and Neal Krakover.

Tickets are just $3 at the door. Some of the night’s proceeds will help High Rocks Academy writing program to continue serving young writers in Pocahontas County and beyond. The Opera House is located at 818 Third Ave. Marlinton, WV. 304-799-6645. pocahontascountyoperahouse.org

VOICES POSTER final version

Later in the month on April 24th, the Family Refuge Center (FRC) will present an evening of spoken word called, “Voices.” This is a poetry event held at the Irish Pub on E. Washington Street in downtown Lewisburg (see back cover for info. on the pub).

We are featuring this event early in case you wish to participate. The purpose of “Voices” is to call on all of you (gender and age aside) to share your story of empowerment over victimization. Please share your story whether it’s through the written word, stage presence, or both. This will be a powerful event that is sure to draw the room together in collective spirit and kinship.

Voices is not a competition for best poem. All types of submissions are welcome. To sign up, please send an email to frc.voices@mail.com. Performances should be no more than 5 minutes. Submissions can be original or cited works. Anyonymous submissions will also be accepted and presented on your behalf. If you have any questions, please call: 304-645-6334.

During the month of April, we encourage you to discover local poets here in Pocahontas & Greenbrier County. You may just learn something new about yourself and others.

– Christina Entenmann, LBSPY #51. (April 7-May 5, 2014)
