WHERE:  Pig Iron Literary & Art Works, 26 N. Phelps Street, in downtown Youngstown.

Weather permitting, we will be reading outside on the sidewalk in front of the Pig Iron Press building.

Please call Pig Iron Literary & Art Works, 330-747-6932, if you have any questions.

DISCLAIMER: The Second Tuesday Open Poetry Reading is facilitated by Jim Villani.  I’m just an attendee trying to help get the word out… it is a small group, we need more people. This post has not been “approved” by anyone. Button image below is from YBWorks, my little button biz, and not the name of any local poetry anything. I’m adding it just for grins because if I don’t add a photo in this post, a default image will pop up when shared on social media. Please see the Facebook event page if you need a map or more information.  Thank you!

NEXT READING:  September 8, 2015 (location to be announced)

I have not seen a robin yet, but the bird up that tree yesterday was a sure sign of Spring coming to downtown Youngstown, Ohio. Yes, the Christmas lights are coming down. Time to unwrap the trees.

Thanks for reading!

DoYo Snow

Snow in DoYo

It’s warm and snowing in D0Y0 (Downtown Youngstown) so I went for a walk in this wintry wonderland. The roads are a mess. Sometimes, it is safer to walk than ride. Unless, of course, your transportation is a human powered sled going down the same hill over and over again.

Best enjoy while you can as temps drop to insanely bitter cold again on Monday.

Thanks for reading!
