Whether you’re a novice or expert in the world of readings, poetry and spoken word, consider submitting your work for our fall POETRY SPEAKS event scheduled from 6-8:30 p.m. on Monday, October 15 in the Huntington Room of Main Library, 325 Michigan St. Even if you don’t want to read, consider coming out and hearing what several poets in our community are talking about.

Former POETRY SPEAKS readers include Joel Lipman, former Lucas County Poet Laureate, Jane Bradley, Leonard Kress, Ryan Bunch, David Baker,John Dorsey, and a number of other outstanding regional and national poets.

Dorsey, a local poet, playwright, newspaper journalist and screenwriter, will return on October 15 with his inspiring readings. His first published credit as a poet was in 1992 and his work has since appeared in hundreds of small press and academic journals and anthologies. Dorsey has authored a number of collections of poetry and has received multiple nominations for the Pushcart Prize. Other poets sharing the stage with Dorsey on October 15 include Charity Anderson, Deirdre Perlini, Zach Fishel, Cynthia Smith and Aneta Golubitska.
