The last Thursday of every month, the Lahaska Bookshop will host Poetry is Not a Dirty Word: A Monthly Poetry Series. Each month, we will have a featured poet reading their work followed by an open mic.
Who should come? Those who write poetry, those who read poetry, those who listen to poetry, those who don't think poetry is some sort of dirty, scary word, those who love poetry, those who merely like poetry, and those who are under the misguided impression they don't like poetry. So pretty much everyone.
For those looking to read: We're looking for a wide range of styles, genres, themes, from a wide range of people, so whether it's odes, epics, slam, haiku, some style of poetry that is your own creation, etc etc etc we are excited to hear your voice.
