A Lovely Night for Poetry

FullSizeRender-13We had another awesome night of poetry at this month’s installment of our literary series. Thank you to our wonderful hosts, Rich Ferguson and Stephanie Barbé Hammer, who read some of their work for our rapt audience.

This month, we welcomed celebrated poets F. Douglas Brown, Rachel McLeod Kaminer, Jessica Ceballos and Chiwan Choi. We’re so grateful to this remarkable group (and our huge audience!) for coming out to read and enjoy poetry on a hot LA summer night!

We also chose a writing prompt for next month’s event: “Kenny has gap teeth” (from Stephanie Barbé Hammer’s poem “Kenny”). If you are inspired to write a poem or flash-fiction piece based upon this prompt, please share it with us at next month’s reading (which will be on Thursday, October 8th)!
