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.
