Closing Poetry Hoot for this
June 4th: 7-9 pm
with featured readers Ryk McIntyre and Clay Ventre.
Pamela Harrison was to be one of our Featured June Readers. She
learned her daughter is due to deliver her first child (Pamela
Harrison's first grandchild) May 25th in Seattle. She is needed
there and had to beg off with sincere apologies.
recently, Clay Ventre generously agreed to feature this June. Thank
you, Clay. Clay makes his home in Massachusetts. To learn

The Listening Room at MindFull Books
in Jaffrey offers a monthly "Audio Graffiti Poetry Series"
When Ryk featured there a while back, their web editor posted this
"You know in your heart of hearts that this is going to
be a show worthy of you getting in your car and getting yourself and
a carload of friends up to Jaffrey this Saturday...YOU KNOW IT IS!!"
program is on a Wednesday evening, not a Saturday, but we'd pretty
much say the same thing about our entire program:
yourself and friends to our June Poetry Hoot! YOU KNOW YOU
Come early for a good seat and
to 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.
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 are being posted on the
Poetry's Heart info &
updates page. A detailed discussion is now
posted. The first set of prompts were posted
January 31st. The rest are following in
