UPDATE: Event Names, Feature Lineup

I have made the decision that only the events at Phoenix Coffee will be called “Saturday Night With The Poet’s Haven.” This will make promotional language easier to write and understand. (I’ve always found it challenging to explain the multiple venue format in a fast manner. Now, its simply “SNWTPH events are held every other month at Phoenix Coffee in South Euclid.”) When we do have an event that uses the same format during the other months (such as November’s show at Sonnets), it will be promoted with its own title.

Speaking of November 19th’s Vending Machine: Poetry for Change event (see how easy that was), I am pleased to announce that the feature lineup will include Shelly Gracon-Nagy! She’ll be joined by Andrew Tobias Line and the music of Glass Audrey!
