Harry Calhoun has had work published in various poetry journals and more than a dozen books and chapbooks over the past three decades. His career has included Pushcart nominations, a Sundress Best of the Net nomination and publications in Abbey, Orange Room Review, Faircloth Review, Thunder Sandwich, Lily and others. In 2011, Flutter Press published his chapbook The Insomnia Poems. 2012 was an exceedingly good year, with the publication of the limited-edition chapbook Maintenance and Death, the collection of poems from the ‘80s and ’90s called Retro, and the chapbook of love poems, How Love Conquers the World. Maintenance and Death is in the process of going to a second edition and a full-length poetry book is in the works. Harry lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with his wife Trina and his dogs Hamlet and Harriet.

    lots of talent. Main presenter interesting and informative. Run in a fair and even handed way. With the number of presenters (19) things proceeded at warp speed and there seemed no mechanism to contact an individual for critique. Since the group is so
    capable and clever comments from them would very valuable. For myself there were several outstanding submissions and I would like show my appreciation in a concrete way.
    This was my first time and it certainly will not be my last!

    Never been to open mic. Does five minutes mean: "about five minutes" or five minutes and zero seconds. Is there time for a tiny intro not charged to five minutes?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
