Indie Penned Events Presents: the Poetry to Portrait Series (& Anthology) @ Independence Art Studios, every 2nd Wednesday of the month. The series will produce an anthology of the November 2012-November 2013 readings, due out in the Spring of 2013. Digital Artist Stephen Pare will create portraits of each featured poet and create an additional “Word Art” piece of one poem read. The second half of the night is an open mic night for the first five poets who sign up. See the website for Independence Art Studios, or just show up! The first feature poet is J.P. (John Pluecker) so you won’t want to miss our debut on November 14, 2012. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
