Houston Hot Fusion: Music & Poetry Benefit For Public Poetry At Rudz says
Get This!! - We're raffling poetry consults with poet Randy Watson, a song-writing consult with Ken Gaines and one hour by phone or Skype with poet Sasha West to help with general concerns or advice! This is in addition to our incredible silent auction.

Blazing music and blistering poetry will make the night sizzle at Rudyard’s as a lineup of performers take the stage starting at 8pm.

Doors will open at 7:30pm when the silent auction begins.

The poetry and music fusions will take off at 8pm and be as follows:
8-8:50 ------ Kelly Ann Ellis and Charles Bryant
9-9:50 ------ Chris Wise and Robert Kuhn
10-10:50 --- Michael Snediker and TAGG
11-1:00 ---- Jasminne Mendez and Patrick Brink

Emcee Ken Jones will helm the show until midnight followed by Taylor Gibson for the open mic.. The late-night open mic will begin after midnight, and several of Houston's top poets who are not on the official lineup are itching to perform. Cover is $12 for the night and only $5 after midnight.

Public Poetry provides Houston with a slate of programs that help to solidify Houston’s reputation for being one of the top poetry cities in the country.

ARTlines events are a collaboration between Public Poetry and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. ARTlines2 invited writers nationwide to submit original poems inspired by MFAH artworks selected by the curators. Now we're publishing the ARTlines2 anthology with an exciting book launch at the MFAH on September 10 @ 6:30 PM. Get that on your calendar now!!

The award-winning Public Poetry Reading Series brings a variety of poets every month to Houston Public Libraries. Featured readers include prominent academics, student talent chosen by Writers in the Schools, performance poets, and well regarded published authors including two Pulitzer Prize nominees and Texas State Poets Laureate.

Poetry Ex Libris, moderated by Dom Zuccone, is a lively online book club that meets monthly with different poets each time discussing a book they recommend.

This coming year, Public Poetry will be adding even more programs, so we need your help to continue and to grow. Come to the benefit, and have fun while you support our work!
