Front Royal Reading and Open Mic a Huge Success

In the beautiful and cozy setting of Changes Antique Gallery, 3 featured poets and 16 open mic readers performed in celebration of Women's History Month last Saturday, March 14. The creative vibe was palpable as local poets from teens to seniors got up an shared their work. The house was packed!

Thanks go out to Catherine Wolnievicz for her hard work to coordinate the event, JoEllen McNeal for her enthusiasm and support, Tory, Pat, Christian, and Melissa for hosting the event and providing refreshments, and guest featured readers Mattie Quesenberry Smith and Julia Campbell Johnson.

Here is the article in the Warren Sentinel:

Stop by Changes Antiques Gallery sometime to see the current art show on their walls and shop for something unique then head next door for excellent wine and cheese at Vino y Formaggio then to the neighboring D & B Chocolates for handmade chocolates, fudge, and gelato!

Glad to hear your event was a success. Small passionate readings are perfect for poetry. Having read at dozens of venues here in Texas and my views openly liberal, I am considering starting a workshop/open mic/featured reader venue in my small and conservative town. Any suggestions?
