Save the Date: 20th Annual Poets’ Night Out

You’re invited to the 2017 Poets’ Night Out event at The City Opera House

Now in its 20th year, Poets’ Night Out continues to celebrate original poetry written and submitted by residents of Antrim, Benzie, Charlevoix, Emmet, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Manistee, Missaukee, and Wexford counties. Winning poems are published in the Poets’ Night Out chapbook, and winning poets will be asked to read their poem at the Poets’ Night Out event at 7:00 p.m. in the City Opera House on Sunday April 23, 2017. Admission to this event is FREE, with general admission seating.

Poets’ Night Out (PNO) offers a platform for poets of all ages in our community, professional or amateur, to have an affordable opportunity to become published, to read to a receptive audience and to network with fellow writers.

PNO Chapbooks from past years, featuring the original poetry of each year’s winning entries, are available at the TADL Main Library. You find them via the online catalog.
