Juried into The Belfast Poetry Fest: YES!! (See first "team" on list).

The selection jury for this year’s Belfast Poetry Festival has met and reviewed submissions, and is pleased to announce the lineup for this year’s festival. In no particular order, the twelve teams presenting at this year’s feature event, “The Poem to Behold,” are as follows:

Alicia Fisher and self
Jefferson Navicky and Carrie Scanga
Lee Sharkey and Joan Braun
Carolyn Gelland and Julieanne Reed
Valerie Lawson and Michael Brown
The Poet Rising Collective
Carol Bachofner and self
Margaret Weston and self
Maryjean Crowe and Elizabeth Garber
Rachel Contreni Flynn and Lucy Ellen Smith
Barbaria Maria and Kathryn Robyn
Elizabeth Tibbetts and Robert Shetterly

" case anyone missed it, we’ve changed the format for this year’s event. Rather than a gallery walk, this year’s festival will take place at a single venue and will feature a fast-paced, live multimedia show of poems and images, along with a Pecha-Kucha inspired mix & mingle. The festival draws a devoted crowd of poets and artists from across the state and New England, so, regardless of one’s position in this year’s event—whether showcased or supporting—please treat this as an opportunity to make connections, share ideas, and join a lively dialogue about the presence and the possibilities of art...."

Looking forward to seeing you all in the fall!
