“Afterwards Chicago, Global Poetry Night,” was 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.
