Poetry Reading and Donation Drive Complete Success!

So to Speak Fiction Editor Atossa Shafaie sells journals at the Will Read for Women drive.

As promised, So to Speak hosted an amazing poetry reading and donation drive on Saturday night benefiting Bethany House shelter!  We celebrated poetry, women, and feminist communities at our first-ever Will Read for Women event with more than 75 guests, 4 featured readers, and 2 open-mic readers! And with the generous support of our audience members, we collected over 15 boxes of donated pantry items–an entire car-full! 

 

 

 

 

 

From left to right, our terrific readers included Joe Hall, Meg Ronan, Sarah Browning, and Kateema Lee.

Poets Meg Ronan, Kateema Lee, Joe Hall, and Sarah Browning each  read from a beautiful array of lyric to experimental verse. The poems focused on a number of different topics, including the body, sexual and family relationships, D.C., and high school. All four of the poets were incredible readers, and we were so pleased to have their support for this exciting event.

Here are our two lovely hosts, Kate Partridge and Warren Ciabattoni, with the fabulous readers!

 

 

Keep us updated on what events you would like to see us host in the future! And thank you, again, for all of your amazing support!
