A few handpicked happenings that might be under your radar (until now).

>> Poetry in Plain Sight:
Live Readings by Poetry in Plain Sight Poets in the Downtown Arts District during the Gallery Hop including my girl, the talented Jacinta White. Poetry in Plain Sight is a program presented by Winston-Salem Writers, in collaboration with Press 53, that brings poetry to downtown Winston-Salem. Four poems are chosen monthly and displayed on posters in over 20 locations throughout Winston-Salem’s Arts District and downtown. The goal is to bring poetry to a wider audience and to support North Carolina poets. Learn more here.
