All friends of the lively word are invited to the Mendocino Spring Poetry Celebration at Hill House in Mendocino town. There will be two open readings. Prepare four minutes for each, of your own work or of others. Choice comestibles, fellowship, open book displays. Music: Richard Cooper, bass. Contributions warmly accepted. Between the two sessions, enjoy the town, the sea, and coastal headlands.

This will be the 40th Anniversary recollection of a Spring marathon reading, and the tenth consecutive revival. The event attracts some of the best work from the north counties and beyond, with some forty poets and writers. It is an encouraging opportunity for new voices. All poems read will be considered for broadcast by Dan Roberts on KZYX&Z.
