Our next Open Mic, Tuesday, June 7, 2022, at 7pm will again be offered via ZOOM! Please join us and you can ask for a spot to read when you join the zoom meeting or just join and listen.

For June, we’ll have a featured performer, Steve Delia. Steve has been writing poetry 45 years. He has read in many coffee houses, libraries, book stores and other venues. He read on WXPN. He was a 1st place winner at the 2015 Philadelphia Writers Conference. He is one half of the dueling poets with Mike Cohen. He has also worked with Mike doing interviews with poets until COVID halted their project. These can be viewed on YouTube. He hosts the Elkins Park Poetry series and co-runs Thriving Thursday readings with his partner in crime-Abbey Porter. He has 2 books, The Alphabet Concerto and Poetry Time which can be purchased on Amazon. He has a new book in the works that he hopes to be out by late summer. He also writes memoirs and more recently essays which he has yet to unleash to the world.

Please email Terry Foreman to ask for the Zoom link to this event at least one hour before the event. Her email is: terry@newarkartsalliance.org.  Your email will be added to the Open Mic Audience Address book and you will be sent the zoom meeting link each month.
