We had a great turnout tonight! I'd like to thank Dianne Borsenik, Christopher Franke, T.M. Göttl, Sarah Lambert, and Jen Pezzo for coming out and reading tonight, and a huge THANK YOU to Geoffrey Landis and Mary Turzillo for being tonight's featured authors.
The wonder of modern technology also allowed Katherine Zaleski to read at the open-mic, while she was in Philadelphia, PA. This wasn't something I planned, but during the night's readings the idea of a "long-distance open-mic," a poet reading over the phone to the live audience, clicked in my mind. I might try this again in the future. Thanks, Kathy!!!
The next Poet's Haven open-mic event is coming right up on November 1, at Muggswigz in Canton. This one's a Halloween event. A camera will be rolling to capture any poets who come in costume for a special video edition of the podcast.
I'm looking forward to getting started on the podcasts from tonight's show... just as soon as I get a few hours sleep. :-) The first episode including tonight's readings should be online by Monday, November 3.
