We as Berks Bards are thrilled to share our First Thursday poetry reading from last month on Zoom here via YouTube. In February 2021, we featured Marissa Michel who became the Youth Poet Laureate of Prince George's County in Maryland in 2020.
February of this year also marks us finally bringing our open mic after featured poet readings on First Thursdays back monthly. Until now, we had not hosted our open mics since March 2020, our last in-person poetry reading and open mic at GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, where we hosted these events for years. We, like those behind many nonprofits, have had a lot to adjust to since 2020 in how we operate. So we're very grateful to bring back this much-missed aspect with our free events for those of you who join us as our audience.
Below, please enjoy our poetry reading with Marissa Michel and our limited sign-ups open mic!
And if you'd like to see our November 2020, December 2020, and January 2021 poetry readings on Zoom, they are available to check out here.
Be on the the lookout for our March 2021 poetry reading featured poet Katy Giebenhain and the return of our open mic soon, once we have it shared to YouTube.
