February’s First Friday Poetry features EVA XANTHOPOULOS!

Arts in Stark and The Poet’s Haven present Canton’s First Friday Poetry Spectacular! February 3rd will feature the poetry of Eva Xanthopoulos!

Eva Xanthopoulos is the founder of Poehemian Poetry and the co-founder of True Colors Press. Her work has been published in se…veral anthologies and she is the author of three books; “The Artistic Muse,” “Water Walker,” and “The Poehemian Series.” Poetry, music, and art are her muses and her life would lack color without them. She writes to inspire others — it’s safe to say that it’s her life’s purpose. Her official website can be found at www.theartisticmuse.com.

NEW LOCATION NEW LOCATION!!!!!! The Poetry Spectacular will now take place at CABLE HALL in the Canton Cultural Center for the Arts!!! (That’s the same place as the Canton Museum of Art. We’re by the Pegasus sculpture.)

This show includes an open-mic and poetry slam. First place in the slam wins $50. Second place wins $30. Third place wins $20. Prize money provided by Arts in Stark.

This is an ALL-AGES/UNMODERATED event, meaning that everyone is welcome to attend and participate, but parents should be aware that there are no restrictions on language and some performances may contain adult language and content.

We will be broadcasting this event on USTREAM! (Don’t worry, poets, the open-mic will not be recorded. You can still feel free to try out rough drafts during the first portion of the event.)
