Tia Ballantine and Mike Edwards, Poetry at the Cobalt
October 29, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
POETRY ON THE RIVER HAS MORPHED INTO POETRY AT THE COBALT
THIS IS AN INVITATION TO ALL POETS, WRITERS, READERS, AND LOVERS OF LITERATURE, YOUNG, OLD, IN BETWEEN, KNOWN, UNKNOWN, SUBMERGED, EMERGED AND EMERGING: Rhyming, free verse, expensive or expansive verse, reverses, metered, learned, unlearned, experimental—all varieties, styles and non-styles are welcome.
The Noyo Center for Marine Science can no longer offer space for the poetry series, as the Slack Tide Cafe has now become the Noyo Center Marine Science Field Station and will be the site of research and education projects including growing red abalone, setting up seaweed tumbleweed tanks, and purple urchin ranching—a different kind of poetry! In any case, we thank the Noyo Center for providing the space for the Poetry On The River readings, as we move on to continue the poetry series at the beautiful Cobalt Gallery on Main Street in downtown Fort Bragg.
The new reading series, Poetry At The Cobalt, will be held the last Sunday of the month—however, at a later time, 5–7 pm. Our first reading at the Cobalt Gallery will be Sunday, October 29th, 5–7 PM, and will feature poets Tia Ballantine and Mike Edwards the first hour, followed by open mic readings. The featured readers read for 15 minutes or so, and the open mic poets have 5 minutes each (or more depending on how many show up). Please get this around far and wide, as we’d like to reach all over Mendocino County and beyond. Any suggestions or ideas you have, including other people to invite, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, and looking forward to seeing you Sunday, Oct. 29th, 5–7 p.m. at the Cobalt Gallery.
