Join us on Sunday, March 10th from 1-3pm for a poetry reading! The first of monthly readings will feature Stephen Concert, Harveys Lake PA author who has been writing poetry for over 45 years. His poetic works have been recognized in local, state, and national competitions—twice in Creative York’s “The Writer’s Eye” competition. He has been a featured reader for many reading series, including: First Friday at the Ragged Edge (Gettysburg), Givin Library (Mt. Holly), as well as Colorado and New Mexico. In March, Steven will be guest-hosting an ekphrastic poetry reading for Colorado poets via Zoom.

A volunteer who had the word “no” stripped from his vocabulary, Steven serves as 2nd Vice President and manuscripts editor for the National Federation of State Poetry Societies and has been a Board member for nearly eighteen years; he serves as president, treasurer, and anthology editor for the Pennsylvania Poetry Society; secretary for the Ohio Poetry Association; co-leadership and anthology editor for the River Poets (Bloomsburg, PA); and quarterly newsletter editor for the Mad Poets Society (Philadelphia, PA).

His poetry has been published in Agates, Art Through the Eyes of the Mad Poets, Common Threads, Fixed and Free Quarterly, Got Verse?, Listening to Water, ONE ART, Poetry 2022, River Poets anthology, and Word Fountain. Steven’s published collections include: Steer into the Skid (North 415 Press, 2022), No Mortar Required (2013), Standing in the Chaos (2006), and Too Blind to See (1996).

Following the feature, we will open the podium up to writers who would like to share their work with the crowd.

This event is free and open to the public
