January 26th: Meg Smith Features

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 January 26th, we welcome the return of Lowell poet Meg Smith.

Meg Smith writes and publishes poetry, fiction, articles, essays, and arts and entertainment reviews. She is the editor of Red Eft, a publication of speculative literature and art and for four years was editor and publisher of The Banshee, a zine based in Lowell, Mass. honored by grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

She frequently appears at poetry readings throughout the area and have hosted numerous open mics and have produced several literary events -- including events combining my passion for literature and Middle Eastern dance.

She served for 14 years on the planning committee and board of directors of the annual Lowell Celebrates Kerouac! festival honoring Lowell, Mass. author and native son Jack Kerouac.
