New Poet Challenge

On Tuesday, March 3rd, at 6pm , Get ready for an exciting new reading that will redefine feature readings in Portland! 

Here is what we do : 

We ask a few poets to read for five minutes . These are the challenger poets. 
Each of them asks three people they know who do not regularly write poetry, and have not ever read live to write 2 or three short poems for their little set; these can be haiku or refrigerator magnet poems. Anything that gets them to writing . 
If they had an enjoyable experience , we will be putting these new poets in other readings around town. 

Fresh poets , everyone! Come and get them!

Our Challenger Poets who will bring us all these fresh new voices are 

Leah Rainer 

Hollie Fisher

Larry Narron 

The poets they are bringing will be announced later.
