Poetry On the Rise!

According to an article in the Houston Chronicle titled, “Poetry on the rise at slams, in the classroom, on the street,” the competitive nature of slam poetry is prompting a resurgence in this art form.

Columbus has a thriving poetry community as well. Groups such as The Poetry Forum, Writers Block Poetry Night, Ohio Poetry Association, and the Peripatetic Poets are just a fraction of the many in town.

My monthly email newsletter, Write Now Newsletter, lists those poetry events that have a featured reader and that are brought to my attention. I once tried to track the open mics and slams in central Ohio, but I gave up. There were just too many!

I love problems of prosperity!
