Poets’ Night Out 2022

Update 4/14 – the 2022 chapbooks have arrived. You can purchase them online or at the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the Woodmere Library. Thank you for supporting local poetry!

This event took place April 3 at the City Opera House. We’re leaving the post up for a bit to promote the new poetry chapbooks.

Now in its 24th 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 the winning poets have been asked to read their poem at the Poets’ Night Out event at 7:00 p.m. in the City Opera House on Sunday April 3, 2022. 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.
