Poetry Salon – July 21st 

Poetry Salon Continues!  Our area Poets have spoken and asked for the Poetry Salon to be a regular event —  so here it is, on Friday, July 21st, at 6:30 pm, courtesy of The Dorset Village Library.
Please come to The Dorset Village Library on this summer evening to read and share your poetry.  It’s a time to read and to listen, to experience poetry aloud, as it’s essentially meant to be received, and to be in the company of other poets.
The Poetry Salons provide an opportunity to grow our poetry community, to give and receive inspiration, and to commune in our shared love of poetry.  All are welcome — please join us to read, to share, to listen, to meet other poets, and to have a joyful night out!

There will be a reception following the readings.
