The Smoking Poet’s Fifth Anniversary Celebratory Authors’
Can it be?
Has our little cigar pup grown up to a be a big healthy dog, cigar firmly in muzzle, cap pulled low? Swaggering on all fours
and reciting fine poetry between puffs of fiction?
It can and
it is: The Smoking Poet will be celebrating our fifth anniversary in 2011. Preparations are already under way. What better
way to celebrate but to gather together some of our best and brightest and smokiest!
the lounge you imagined—dusky and dim, with velvety chocolate brown couches between gold-threaded veils hanging from
a high ceiling, candlelight flickering in a wine glass or a scotch glass, jazz playing in the shadows, and one great writer
after another taking the mike to read words to float you away on a dream.
Come join us.
The first part of the evening will be a line-up of writers from the past five years of The Smoking Poet issues. After an intermission,
the second half is a step-up-to-the-mic with yours. If you have ever had your work published in TSP, you are invited. We want
to hear you.
If you simply
want to witness The Smoking Poet come to life off the page, come sit with us, sip a little, nibble a bit, relax and enjoy
the good words and music.
