Thursday 9:00 PM With Me, Poetry Has Not Been a Purpose, but a Passion.
With works like "The Bells," "The Raven," and "Annabel Lee" Poe applied his dark romantic sensibilities to the art of "beauty in words." Today, according to former SFPA president (and Nebula nominee) Mike Allan "science fiction poetry, fantastic poetry, speculative poetry, whatever you wish to call it, forms the core of a lively, thriving scene that coexists with genre fiction in many venues." Join us for readings by poets active in the vibrant speculative poetry genre, and bring your "dark romantic," fantastical, horrifying or science fiction poetry to read. Gwynne Garfinkle
