SWGTC’s Literary Club Hosts Poetry Reading/Open Mic Night

THOMASVILLE — Southwest Georgia Technical College’s (SWGTC) Literary Club will host an Open Mic Night/Poetry Reading at Grassroots Coffee on Thursday, February 13th, at 7:00 p.m. Event organizers invite community members to come share original poetry or works by their favorite authors. They also encourage others to attend simply to listen and enjoy an evening dedicated to poetry.

The evening’s theme will be Valentine’s Day/Anti-Valentine’s Day and will give people an opportunity to express their “true” feelings for that “special” someone.

“We hope this event will give our community a platform to express themselves. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, this would be a great opportunity for anyone to honor that special someone in their life, or blame someone for breaking their heart. It is important for people to feel that they have a voice, whether expressing love or hate, all feelings are valid,” commented Dr. Jay Snodgrass, SWGTC English Instructor and Literary Club Advisor.

SWGTC’s Literary Club produces a student-run publication, The Inkwell Literary Magazine, which is full of art, poetry, photography, and any other media which someone would like to share.

Southwest Georgia Technical College is a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia.
