Poetry Hoot... Wednesday,
April 2nd: 7-9 pm
Poets Laureate as featured readers in celebration of
National Poetry Month.
years ago the PPLP came up with the idea to invite Portsmouth's
previous Poets Laureate to be featured readers for April, in
celebration of National Poetry Month. One year's brainstorm
becomes the next year's tradition. And now here we are several
years later with the delightful tradition established of having our
previous Laureates feature in April.
don't come to any other Hoot this season, come to this one. (It will
come as no surprise: we recommend you come to all of them.)
That said, this is sure to be a lovely evening of poetry by some of
the Seacoast's finest poets. Come early for a good seat and
enjoy one of Cafe Espresso's fine light meals.

our second hour is open mic. Bring one poem on one page if
you'd like to read. Perhaps this month bring a poem on poetry.
Or just come to be in the excellent company of fine poets ~
Laureates and All...

Circles Launched in January
100 people registered to
participate in the Creation Circles! There are 14. Twenty people agreed to serve as Hosts
(some are co-hosts). Kimberly held an Orientation
session for the Hosts in early December. All hosts
have welcomed participants in their group with details of
time and place.
As a reminder: Circles will meet once a
month January through June, each month considering a
different prompt. The prompts are based on the
Stranger, orphan, outlaw, beloved…how shall we live, so
many hungers upon us?
Portsmouth 6, Kittery 3, Rye 2, Conway 1, Wolfeboro 1,
Circle Meetings: Evening
8, Morning 3, Afternoon 3.
If participants identified themselves at all, they
did so as poets and artists, rather than one
or the other.
As registration was required to join a Creation
Circle and some could attend neither afternoon nor
evening, the PPLP Board at Kimberly's request decided to post all prompts at the end of each
month. Anyone wishing to participate in the
project remotely can follow the prompts
online. The prompts will be posted on the
Poetry's Heart info &
updates page. A detailed discussion is now
posted. The first set of prompts will be posted
