George Murray and Sina Queyras, with host Heather Milne

George Murray and Sina Queyras are accomplished poets who also have strong online presences as the forces behind bookninja.com and lemonhound.com respectively. How are writers talking to one another these days? How are they connecting with communities of readers?

Open to everyone; Admission is Free.


  1. Thanks for being a part of our first poetry show. We just left the show at Thin Air, and we were moved beyond words by everyone we saw.

    We is my two friends and I. We’re all slightly (very) nerdy, geeky, and we bonded over poetry. Performance poetry.

    Seeing a performance of poetry was enjoyable and inspiring and a bunch of other words I’d have to whip out the thesaurus to give you. I guess thank you will have to be enough.

  2. Thanks for the kind words! Next time come up and introduce yourself!
