Virtual Poets!
Kim Shuck hosts featured poets Joshua Merchant and Paul Corman-Roberts, with an open mic to follow

Ever since the pandemic began, Kim Shuck has conducted an open mic over Zoom under the Bird & Beckett auspices, attracting and serving a strong community of poets. The series continues apace, with two readings a month – 2nd and 4th Mondays at 7pm. On the 2nd Monday, there are usually two featured readers followed by an open mic. The 4th Monday reading is all open mic.

This Monday, January 9th, the featured readers are Joshua Merchant and Paul Corman-Roberts, and the open mic just might include you!
