Sunday May 27
7:00pm - 10:00pm
The Uptown Poetry Slam
Hosted by Marc Kelly Smith
Special Guest: EMILY CALVO
A life-long writer and poet, Emily Calvo reconnected with painting several years ago. That’s when she began including her poems in her visual art which were featured in her first collection of poems, “Lending Color to the Otherwise Absurd.” Her visual art has been featured in Subprimal Poetry, the Chicago Writer’s Association “Write City Magazine Journal”, “Subprimal Poetry Art,” “Poets and Artists” and the “2019 Women Artists Datebook.” Calvo’s Green Mill performance will include her poetry and three paintings that feature the poems of Marc Kelly Smith.
The night night will be backed up by the music of Steve Hashimoto (electric bass), Carter Luke (piano), and Heath Chappell (drums).
Final set is the infamous Slam Competition wherein some lucky poet may win $10. Wow!
