Hello Poets and Writers,

Coffee With the Poets is honored and happy to have as our featured poet, Glenda Barrett, Hiawassee, GA native who is an artist in many ways. She paints. She writes. She is a great photographer.But I know Glenda as a good friend, a caring human being who always has time for others who might be in pain.

On Wednesday, November 14, 10:30 a.m. Glenda will read at Coffee with the Poets at Café Touche in Hayesville, NC.  Her poetry book, When the Sap Rises, published by Finishing Line Press, is the kind of poetry that people who don't know they like poetry enjoy.

Be sure to come on Wednesday, bring a friend and bring something to read in the open Mic Reading -- poems or short fiction or memoir. CWP is a place for community to grow. Meet other writers, meet new people, readers and writers, and enjoy the goodies at Café Touche. Have a coffee and muffin or a smoothie or latte. We appreciate Café Touche for hosting us and we hope to be there for a long time. Support the café so they can continue to support us. posted by Glenda Beall.
