London Open Mic Poetry Night

Local poet Stan Burfield and friends have recently announced a new reading series to commence this fall here in London, Ontario. This will be a more accessible series than what's available for aspiring participants and fills the need here in town for "ordinary poets" to have a public place to share their work. London is already serviced with a successful, dedicated CanLit series of award-winning, national poets stopping by on tour, and with an extremely popular Poetry Slam series, but for years has not had a regular, monthly event where LONDON versifiers can have an audience to hear them read. The series is slated to occur on the last Thursday of the month at a venue to be announced. Each month will have a featured poet and then a generous open mic portion -- great news for all who want to see poetry thrive in the Forest City.
