New Poets Challenge #6

Tuesday August 4th will be the exciting SIXTH installment of New Poet Challenge, Hosted by Amanda Cochran Helstrom-White!

We bring you the freshest in new voices! How do we do it? It's simple ; we invite a number of people who are regulars around town, and each of them brings up to three people who have never read live, and just started writing poetry. They can write simple stuff like Haiku or refrigerator magnet poetry,as long as IT GETS THEM TO WRITE. 

Everyone has up to five minutes , and if the new poets enjoyed the reading and would like to do it again, Amanda and I will add them to other readings that we produce. 

Our challenger poets for June are 

Lisa Galloway 
Hollie Fisher 
Sarah Westbrook Binns
and two former " New Poets" who will be challenging some friends:
Amie Annsa 
Megan Saint-Marie 

Pairings is a wine bar that always has the perfect wine for any meal, Occasion or even t.v. show! They serve wine by the glass or by the bottle, and they also have delicious snacks

That's happening on Tuesday June 2nd from 6pm to to 8 pm (likely be done before then) at Pairings Portland Wine Shop & Bar, 455 NE 24th avenue. 97232
