      Maybe they have their own way in reading the poem. And that can make a different feels for the listeners.

    Gosh.. another one I can't believe I forgot is Toledo.... and Smith's Coffee Shop in Sandusky..??

    The Collinwood Readings are on Tuesdays and their features are on the 2nd Tuesdays. This next one is Zach Moll and Madge,,??? (look at Michael's page)

    Not sure if your including Toledo but if you are you should add that.

    *embarrassed I didn't remind you before*

      I haven't decided how far I wanna go out from Cleveland, because it's gonna mean a lot more time/work.  If I do Toledo, I should do Columbus, Erie, Marion and Youngstown, too, since they're all about the same distance (a two-hour drive) from where I live -- and that'll more double the size of the calendar.  I will definitely include Sandusky and Mansfield, since they're only an hour away.  Beyond that is gonna depend on how much time I have.

          I just added the Collingwood series - just plugged it into every Tuesday - so now all I need to do is fill in the features when they're announced.

            I thought Collingwood was now monthly, on the second Saturday... April 9 features Andrew Rihn and Huntor Prey.

            They're also hosting Buddy Wakefield on April 23rd!

    So will the Poet's of Lorain County only be featuring "poets from Lorain County"? That's what the line up looks like so far...

        The aim is to have at least one poet from Lorain County per month.

    John~ who is hosting the reading at the Shaker Hgts library on the 27th? just curious.. I might try to go... if the stars cooperate.

    I don't think I've ever heard Tom Kryss read before.. though I've got several of his chapbooks I've found in sundry places.

      Hi, Bianca!  I'm assuming you're in northern Ohio.  Yes, by all means, send your event information to me at and I'll be happy to add it.

        The one I sent you several times and we argued about posting it.. it was at Lakeland College in October.

        You told me you were too busy to post events then .... and you told me to talk to Salinger about getting the ability to do it and we had the discussion of you showing me how to post them myself... but I as yet do not know how to do it. You've not told me how.

        that event... do you wish me to look for the email and resend it or should I ask Michael Salinger to do it?

          You mean this one?

          I added it quite a while ago, actually while I was in the hospital with my dying sister-in-law. So I'm not sure what your complaint is. Salinger, as admin, has a approved you to add events to the calender on your own. If you're having trouble, here's how you do it:

    The "Be heard open mic/turnt up thursdays" event was cancelled, not sure how long back. But I went yesterday and was told by the "new" owners that the event had been cancelled for a while. Just wanted to throw it out there if you wanted to update it and what not, I reference this page quite a bit.
