NC Writers' Network West Announces New Meeting Place for Coffee With the Poets


New Venue for Coffee with the Poets and Writers - 
Clay County, NC

Coffee with the Poets and Writers has met at Blue 
Mountain Restaurant in  Murphy for the past two 
years. Beginning in March, 2015, this event will 
meet at Joe's Trading Post and Coffee Shop, 
32 Main Street, Hayesville, NC. Joe Powell is owner
of the coffee shop. We met at this location when it 
was  Cafe Touche and run by Liz. The seating is 
different now and probably will be better for our 
group. This event is open to  the public and everyone 
is invited to read a couple of  poems or a prose piece 
of around 1,000 words.

The only food sold at Joe's will be his fine varied 
brands of coffee, soft drinks, tea and a few snack 
items. He will be open to  the public while we meet. 
Please pass this change on to anyone who would 
like to join us on the second Wednesday of each 
month at 10:30 a.m.

We are pleased that Coffee with the Poets, sponsored by
NCWN West, was founded in 2007 and has continued with a
loyal following ever since.

We will NOT MEET in January or February.
well-known man of many talents from Brasstown, NC.
