Open Mic for Ukraine Sunday, March 27th

The war in Ukraine is on everyone’s mind these days. As poets, many of us feel the need to say something about this in the best way we can. OPA will host a Ukraine-themed open mic on Sunday, March 27, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to read for five minutes or less. Register to receive the Zoom link.

Easter Creek, by Gary Lark, reviewed by Tony Greiner

Gary Lark has long been a favorite poet of mine, starting over 20 years ago when I heard him at a reading. Lark read one of his poems “Fishing” and another by Clemens Starck. I thought it generous of him to spend some of his time celebrating another poet’s work. Lark’s poetry also has this kind and accepting spirit, a heart-softening quality that embraces the humanity of even those who err.
