...and now Snoetry II is coming right up-- starting next Wednesday, in Elyria, and running until the middle of the following week! Whoa, snow!

Thanks, Geoff! I am neck deep in preparations for Snoetry 2 and am gonna try my best to get a full listing of scheduled performers and open mic times posted ASAP here at Cleveland Poetics. Might not be 'til tomorrow because we've also got In Verse Lorain tonight. I also plan to post something about your featured reading this Sunday at PoetryElyria.
