December 30: Patrick S. 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 December 30, Patrick S. will provide us a terrific close to 2013 with his first feature debuting his first full-length book of poetry.

Patrick S. is a co-organizer of Lowell, Massachusetts's Mill City Slam and was a member of its 2010 National Poetry Slam team. He has featured at numerous poetry venues in the Northeast, including past features at Stone Soup. He will be debuting his first full-length book, a narrative 47-poem series entitled Her Name Was Not Brighton composed during many sessions of the Brighton Word Factory writing group. He describes the book as "sort of a magical realism romance novella in free verse", as it otherwise defies attempts at classification.
