Yesterday morning I put the finishing touches on the schedule for Snoetry 4: A Kultured Winter Wordfest.  I am very excited about this slate of poets and most grateful to Guide To Kulchur: Text, Art, and News for hosting us.  It seems incredible that although I began my live poetry career (if you can all it that) in Cleveland, and the Lix and Kix Poetry Extravaganza that Dianne Borsenik and I founded has always had its heart in Cleveland, this will be our very first Snoetry in the city.  It’s time.


Featuring writers from several states! Lix & Kix, and friends present the 4th almost annual Snoetry winter wordfest, Sunday 16 March from noon to 11 pm at Guide To Kulchur: Text, Art, and News in the Gordon Square arts district of Cleveland, Ohio.

Open mic from noon to 1 p.m. 60 featured poets from 1 to 11 p.m.

Potluck and BYOB. If you have any questions, please contact John on Facebook or at
