We are thrilled to announce our new annual reading series, The SRPR Lucia Getsi Reading Series, named for SRPR’s long-time beloved editor, Lucia Getsi, and sponsored by WGLT’s Poetry Radio, ISU’s Creative Writing Program, and ISU’s Department of English.
Our inaugural event will feature FOUR fabulous SRPR poets, and will take place at the Ewing Manor in Bloomington, IL, on April 4th from 7 – 10:00 pm. Poetry reading will be followed by a reception at the manor.
SRPR’s featured poets are: Bill Stobb (Winner of SRPR’s 2012 Editors’ Prize); Joshua Corey (SRPR Featured Poet, issue 37.1); Naomi Buck Palagi (SRPR Contributor, issue 37.2), and Holms Troelstrup (SRPR Contributor, 37.1).
The event is free and open to the public, and we will have wine and homemade appetizers, on the house. Depending on the weather, fireplaces will be roaring or we’ll be milling about in the gardens. Donations will be gladly accepted, though they are not required.
Save the date, and bring a friend!
