Akron’s Latitudes Poetry Night Winds Up Its Year with Mini-Workshop Preceding Open Mic

Wed 12/19 @ 7PM

Every third Wednesday of the month, Akron’s Compass Coffee shop in the basement of The Well hosts Latitudes Poetry night, another of those open mic sessions where aspiring poets can come and read their work.

There will be the chance to do that at the final session of the year. But there’s a little something extra too. Prior to opening the mic at 7:30, there will be a half-hour mini workshop with Pennsylvania poet Crystal Stone, who will also kick off the readings with some of her own work.

Stone’s work has been published in many literary journals and her first collection of poetry Knock-Off Monarch, is on the way. She’s working on her MFA at Iowa State University and gave a TEDx talk on poetry this past spring.

The event is free and open to all.
