In Februrary 2011, Lix and Kix produced a 150-hour poetry marathon — Snoetry 2: A World Record Winter Wordfest — at Jim’s Coffeehouse and Diner in downtown Elyria.  Dianne Borsenik and I emceed most of it, many others helped, and poets from all over (probably a couple hundred in all) came to participate. Early that Sunday, Nick Wilkinson brought his film crew from Akron to capture some of the event.

Last night, I saw this video for the very first time.  This is actually the shorter of two versions Nick Wilkinson shared with me.  In it you can catch glimpses of Zach Ashley, Azalea Tidwell, Cornelius Bent, Christopher Franke, Lenore Ireland, my co-host Dianne and others.  I’ll share Nick’s longer, alternate version in the very near future.

Filmmaker Nick Wilkinson, a 2011-2012 Emmy nominee, is also the lead singer/songwriter for Nick Wilkinson And The Featured Players. Find him at

Stay tuned to this blog for information about Snoetry 3 and a Half, which will happen Saturday January 26th 2013 from noon to midnight at Poet’s Hall, 1136 E. Lake Road in Erie, Pennsylvania.
