Here are some photos from our last event in March, when Kitty Jospe had us wrapped around her finger (and her poems, I suppose)!

Kitty read selections from her book Cadences as well as new work.

I think my favorite part may have been when she read one poem in three stages of being workshopped-- three individual poems on their own, all shaped and shifted by varying critiques.

Love this one of Karen Linamen reading during the Open Mic segment.
Her piece was light and fun-- just what we needed after a long week.

It's safe to say that everyone truly enjoyed Kitty's warm presence and energetic presentation. Her poems still resonate. If you missed her, I will have copies of Cadences available for sale this Friday at our next event.

Speaking of-- Danen Jobe, novelist and faculty at Pikes Peak Community College, will be our featured reader this Friday the 13th (wooooooo!) at 7:30PM. We're in the BAC (513 Manitou Avenue) as usual, with wine and beer for sale at the bar before the reading and during intermission, plus the baked goodies from Orchard Ovens, the bakery that's just opened in the foyer of Venue 515 next door. Support these local businesses by arriving hungry and thirsty!

Thank you, everyone, for your support at these readings. It speaks volumes about the value of community in Colorado Springs.

See you Friday!
