“Afterwards Chicago, Global Poetry Night,” is a hybrid poetry reading event that will happen at After-Words Bookstore on Friday, October 21, starting at five p.m. Central Time. Live performers at the large reading room stage alternate with remote poets seen on a large screen using Zoom. Eight local Chicago poets, including Wherever I'm At contributors Mike Puican, Beatriz Badikian-Gartler, and Nina Corwin, as well as eight poets from around the world, will each perform a five-minute set.
Organizer Mark Fishbein is a member of PGN-Poetry Global Network, an online resource for workshops, events, and festivals. This past year, PGN partnered with The Nottingham Poetry Festival and Poetry Festival Singapore in similar events. The event is free, but registration is required for the Zoom portion.
