Poet, songwriter, musician, and producer Chris Robley – with roots in the “other Portland” – is delivering his well-crafted work to appreciative audiences right here in our own (the first!) Portland these days. POETRY, Prairie Schooner, Poetry Northwest, Beloit Poetry Journal, RHINO, Magma Poetry, Pacifica Literary Review, and Arsenic Lobster have all published Robley’s poetry. He won the Boulevard’s 2013 Poetry Prize for Emerging Writers and the 2014 Maine Literary Award for “Short Works Poetry.”

Read more about Chris and watch video clips of him performing his music at http://blog.chrisrobley.com and then come offer him a warm, island welcome.

Organizer Jesse Mantsch explains, “As always, we will have an open reading, so bring a poem of your own work or another’s to read, or come just to listen, that’s fine, too. And please bring food and/or something to drink, but if you don’t have something to bring, please come anyway. The words and voices are what we want the most.”

WEDNESDAY, JULY 9TH AT 7 PM
