Beginning this Tuesday (February 2nd) at 5 pm, we will host a 150-hour poetry reading at Jim’s Coffeehouse and Diner, 2 Kerstetter Way in Elyria, Ohio.  This list of readers/performers is in flux and I’m still in the process of working out times with a dozen or so poets – so please check back for updates.  If you’re interested in a 30 minute featured reader slot, please comment below or email me at jc@crisischronicles.com.
