First Thursday Reading

First Thursdays March Edition

Mary Stone Dockery reports– We had twelve readers of poetry, fiction, and  nonfiction, in an open mic hosted by Norty’s Bar & Grill. People had drinks and chicken tenders and fried pickles. We heard about cats possessed with the souls of ex-boyfriends.  We heard about New Orleans and shotguns and whiskey and callused hands. We were taught to blame Oprah for reality TV. Someone even shared a poem written thirty minutes in the future.

Our next open mic will be Thursday, April 3, at 7pm, at Norty’s Bar & Grill, and since April is National Poetry Month, we ask that readers only bring poems to share. For any questions or for further information, please contact Mary at
