  TABLEROCK POETRY FESTIVAL, Thursday February 1, 7-10 p.m., at Tablerock Amphitheater (MAP)

Poets from Central Texas gather at Tablerock Amphitheater, 50 miles north of Austin, on the first Thursday of each February, which is February 1 in 2018, to share poetry, to write, and socialize over a generous meal. More details soon.

You are also invited to
submit animal poems for the Animal Tales Anthology. Ideally, up to 35 lines (yes blank lines count), 40 if you must (but it gets cramped), and up to 66 characters/line (but as different characters take different space it’s hard to be exact). Please submit poems to Tablerock1@aol.com for 2018 Animal Tales by January 16. Please put ANIMAL TALES in the subject line.

And there we were, in force. More came to see the end of Expressions than I have ever seen before. The celebrations lasted from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., a truly mammoth reading, a fitting end to twenty years of poetry. The Expressions Final Flourish Anthology was launched and well received. It will be available for download soon, and print copies from Mr Expressions himself, Spirit Thom
