Poetry Atlanta will be hosting their 13th annual Voices Carry poetry reading at the Georgia Center for the Book (at the DeKalb County Public Library) on Thursday, November 30 at 7:15 PM.
The reading will star voices such as Collin Kelley (Render), Cecilia Woloch (Earth and Carpathia), Rupert Fike (Lotus Buffet), Erica Wright (Instructions for Killing the Jackal), and Theresa Davis (Rock Star Poet). Kelley and Woloch both tour the world and hosting workshops for writers across the globe. Fike is a Beatnik legend with strong ties to the Midtown Atlanta hippie poetry scene. Wright taught creative writing at Marymount Manhattan College and is the poetry editor and senior editor of Guernica Magazine. Davis was the Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion in 2011. All five have ties to the South and to Georgia, and many of their works have themes related to Southern identity.
According to their website:
Poetry Atlanta was created by Atlanta Review editor Dan Veach to help promote poetry and spoken word in Atlanta. The non-profit organization e-mails a monthly newsletter listing open mics, readings, workshops and events around the city.
