Stone Soup Poetry meets from 8-10 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery at 106 Prospect Street with an open mike sign-up at 7:30 p.m. On June 30th, Stone Soup welcomes back local favorite Jade Sylvan for what is sure to be a well-attended feature (early arrival is recommended).

Jade Sylvan hails from the rugged streets of Indianapolis, Indiana. In her young adulthood, she traveled to many places such as California, the South, Canada, and Europe, where she drank many delicious local beers. She also graduated from college. Somewhere along the line, she sold her soul to become a novelist and poet. Right now there are some big publishers interested in one of her novels. Really, there are. She's also almost done with another novel she's pretty excited about, not to mention she's going to have a new chapbook soon full of her poems. She's had some poems published in places like Spare Change News and Word Riot, so that's pretty cool, too. Gun to her head, her top five favorite movies are: Fight Club, The Graduate, Annie Hall, The Princess Bride, and Henry Fool.
