ABOUT WAKE UP AND SMELL THE POETRY
This series is for the merging of minds and souls of poets, musicians and other performing artists... as well as those simply coming to listen. We provide a forum for a variety of talented writers and performing artists to share their words and get people awakened and excited about the diversity of voices, perspectives and insights expressed through the art form of poetry, song and spoken word.
This program is offered jointly by Cheryl Perreault, a host/ producer, and by HCAM Station Manager Jim Cozzens. Admission is free but there is a passing of the hat for the features. There are very talented poets and musicians on board for this coming season. You can sign up for reserved seating and open mic below. Open mic slots are limited and available on a first come first serve basis.
