North East PA Poetry Festival at Stonehedge, Tamaqua

The North East PA Poetry Festival: A Poet's Picnic
Saturday, June 14

Let's get back to the basics--poets together sharing poetry and food and exchanging ideas and getting to know each other

This year we are providing greater opportunities to network. Beginning at 11 a.m. the gates will open at Stonehedge Gardens, Tamaqua. Bring a covered dish. At noon the feasting begins along with the opening of festivities with an open mic.

Followed by a featured performance then a period of workshops and critique groups hosted by: Barbara Crooker, Marilyn Hazleton and Anne Copeland.

We will end with another open mic and share some of the days new poetry as well as favorites. Lester Hirsh will also be entertaining with his music and there will be opportunity to tour the garden.

The Marketplace will again be a part of the festival so bring your wares.

Please pass this on to any that might be interested. The admission for the day $5 will go to Stonehedge Gardens to help defray costs of the event but in this time of high gas prices we are keeping costs low but quality high. Let's get together.

Any questions please contact me at or check things out at the website
