poemballs.jpgWe are excited to announce the placement of our second POEMBALL machine! The new POEMBALL machine will be housed inside of Pioneer Book and the official unveiling will be held on October 25, 2016 at 6:30 pm. The launch coincides with Utah Humanities Book Festival, with several events also held at Pioneer Book. The night will feature readings by local poets who have contributed to the POEMBALL as well as an open mic for all poets who would like to share their work. Come out and support local poets!

If you are not familiar with the history of the POEMBALL, here’s a little background. The first machine was released for Poetry Month last April at Enliten Bakery and Café in Provo and was featured by KSL news and Salt Lake City Weekly. The POEMBALL Machine includes poems from many local poets, often found at Enliten Bakery and Café for the Thursday night creative writing open mic, as well as many well-known Utah poets, including Rob Carney, Star Coulbrooke, Meg Day, Kimberly Johnson, Laura Hamblin, and others.
