NCWN Sponsors Poetry in Plain Sight

The North Carolina Writers’ Network is a proud sponsor of September’s Poetry in Plain Sight Program.

Poetry in Plain Sight brings poetry to downtown Winston-Salem. Four poems are chosen each month and displayed on posters in sixteen shop windows throughout Winston-Salem’s Arts District and downtown. The goal is to bring poetry to a wider audience and to support North Carolina poets. This Winston-Salem Writers’ program is a collaborative effort with Press 53, with a monthly event at Barnhill’s Books. It is endorsed by the Downtown Arts District Association of Winston-Salem. Monthly sponsorships from local businesses and corporations support printing costs.

For September, the featured poems are “Pharr Yarns” by Molly Rice; “Sourwood” by Bill Griffin; “Owls on Runnymede” by Becky Gould Gibson; and “Song” by Adrian Rice.

The Winston-Salem Writers will host their monthly event, “4 Poem & a Party,” to celebrate these works on Saturday, August 30, at 1:00 pm, at Barnhill’s Books, 811 Burke St. in Winston-Salem.
