“Poetic Intersections”

For Immediate Release: June 23, 2015

Come explore “Poetic Intersections” between poetry, music and literature with Tori Lane Kovarik, Poet Laureate, City of Alexandria, on Friday, June 26, 7 pm at the Durant Arts Center, 1605 Cameron St.

Poetry can be found in many places – song lyrics, novels, memoirs, traditional verse.  It is in the ear and heart of the receiver.  “Poetic Intersections” is an event to celebrate the poetry found in both the expected and unexpected places.  Bring your own work or your favorite by someone else – a poem, excerpt from a story, song lyrics, whatever collection of words that grabs your heart and rends it the way poetry does.

“Poetic Intersections” will be done in a casual open mic format.  Preregister to share (for 3-5 minutes) by emailing poet@alexandriava.gov by Thursday, June 25.  Space will be limited by time, so preregistration will be honored before sign-ups at the door.  Door sign-ups will read if time permits.
