Thanks Asheville Poets and 100 Thousand Poets for Change

A big thank you to Susie and Lance for hosting the event at the Sly Grog Wine & Beer Lounge located in The Downtown Market Asheville. Especially since 100 Thousand Poets for Change Asheville event ran a bit longer than scheduled.

Thanks again to all the poets who participated: Caleb Beissert, Steve Brooks, Jeff Davis, Barbara Gravelle, Britt Kaufmann Jessica Newton and Brian Sneeden. And to those who joined the event and read after the featured poets: Alice, Ashley, Chuck, Lance and Susie.

An audio recording was captured of the event. Details regarding that will be forthcoming. Also, a found poem will be featured on this blog later this week to commemorate the event and poets who chose to affect change in Asheville in beyond.

Thanks to the Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar for hosting the after party. And thanks to the Rankin Vault Cocktail Lounge for hosting the after-after party.

Special thanks to Michael Rothenberg and Terri Carrion for establishing 100 Thousand Poets for Change (read more about 100TPC here) and helping me track down the elusive bagpiper (in side joke… you’ll have to read my Twitter feed to get it).
