Writers Night Out – Featured Reader Jovonna Van Pelt

January 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Jovonna Van Pelt considered a college degree for a career in Journalism but was advised that she wasn’t tough enough; it may even have been true. Instead, she earned her MA degree in Ethics. Through the years, her writing has served colleagues, non-profits, corporations, and puppeteers. Jo started writing for herself in 2014 and has since been a finalist in the Poet’s Seat competition, a frequent contributor to poetry open mics and area word fests, and a selected poet in the SDWG anthology Compass Roads, edited by Jane Yolen. Unrelated Questions is her first published volume of poetry.

Doors open at 7 – with an open mike.

If you’d like a chance to read, place your name in the hat up until 7:10. Ten names will be randomly selected. The reading starts at 7:15, and each reader will have five minutes.

Admission is free; participants are encouraged to buy a drink in support of the venue.

Please join us!
