Come on out August 14th to see some of the best poets in the Lowcountry. The Word Perfect Poetry Show will be hosted by Marcus Amaker, who returns to the Music Hall stage after last year’s Pecha Kucha 20 presentation.
Joining Amaker will be poets Courtnay The Poet, Matthew Foley, Derek Berry, Carlos Johnson, Joey Tucker, and Laura Cailtin Cox. (More poets TBA)
The Charleston poetry scene has certainly grown over the last few years with poetry slams and weekly readings being held through out the city. Monday Night Blues, Blue Bicycle Books, and many more organizations have helped grow this scene, and we are excited to present but a small contribution to the many poets and writers in Charleston.
Word Perfect will also feature musician / jazz drummer Quentin E. Baxter who will perform selections from “The New Foundation,” his collaborative album with Amaker.
