Dave Morrison

Maine-based poet Dave Morrison has published fifteen books of poetry. His work has been featured in many literary journals, anthologies, and radio programs, including Writer's Almanac, Take Heart, and Poems From Here. 

Wednesday, February 23, 2022
6:30pm – 8:30pm

"There is very little academic about Dave Morrison's approach to poetry; he is a rule-breaker. Don't talk to him about sonnets or sentence structure. His poetry is uncontrived, and it is like breathing, sometimes long and steady; other times, choppy and quick about the lungs. But always, there is rhythm, and uncompromising honesty." –Lynda Clancy, PenBay Pilot

The reading will be followed by a brief open mic. Please email Amesbury Poet Laureate Ellie O'Leary to request the Zoom link.
Thank you to everyone who dined at Flatbread Amesbury last Tuesday evening! Your contribution will help us accomplish new and exciting arts + culture initiatives this year.
