Poets Speak Loud Featuring Rachel Zitomer

The next POETS SPEAK LOUD is July 31 at the Lark Tavern featuring Albany poet Rachel Zitomer followed by an open mic for poetry and spoken word.

Rachel Zitomer has been coming to Albany poetry open mics for the past four years. The scene is the subject of her dissertation, "In Celebration of the Ephemeral: Contemporary Poetry Reading Communities Beyond Institutions in Albany, NY," for which she received her PhD from SUNY in 2006. "Three Sides to the Looking Glass: A Poem for Albany, NY," a more concise and pleasing (aesthetically and otherwise) version of the dissertation, was published as a chapbook by APD Press in 2004. She is better known by some as the girl who makes oatmeal butterscotch cookies on demand.

POETS SPEAK LOUD is a monthly open mic for poetry and spoken word with a featured poet. This mic is hosted by local poets Thom Francis and Mary Panza.

POETS SPEAK LOUD is held at the Lark Tavern (453 Madison Ave., Albany) on the last Monday of each month. Sign-up for the open mic is 7:00pm, start time is 7:30pm.
