Artists: Share Digital Images of Your Work

I had a recent chance to take part in Word Wednesday at Allentown Brew Works. There were 30+ people there and many of them came to share their poetry.

Yodi and Kari have a great event going on. That night, Kari was the perfect, personable hostess and Yodi and the musical ensemble (drummers and guitar, also open to public participation) provided great backup to the poets with chill musical interludes.

Prior to the break, the Word Wednesday crew shared digital images, projected on the wall, of artwork created by local artists. They want more artists to submit images of their work to be shown to the public in a digital slideshow at a future Word Wednesday event.

Please email submissions to: WordWednesday@hotmail.com

Word Wednesday is held the 2nd Wednesday of each month in the cozy Silk Lounge, lower level, Allentown Brew Works, 812 Hamilton Street.

Word Wednesdays is a really dynamic event. I have been there twice, and both times it was really impressive. Okay, I like the spoken word, but I've never been to a poetry night that was so multi-media, with the drums and music and the projector. Additionally, this has to be the most supportive, welcoming environment for creativity in the Lehigh Valley. Anyone can show up with their work and read it. Very nice.
