So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

LINDA SMITH - reads at Coffee with the Poets Hayesville

Linda Smith of Hayesville, NC is the featured reader at Coffee with the Poets on Wednesday, February 13, 10:30 a.m. at Blue Mountain Restaurant in Murphy, NC. Linda is a published poet. Her work has appeared in numerous anthologies and journals. She has been an active member of NCWN West for a number of years. At present she schedules the monthly folk school readings at John C. Campbell Folk School and is an excellent MC for this event.


Linda's poems capture a human feeling or a moment in time here in the southern Appalachian mountains. She says her writing is inspired by the place where she lives. Linda has been a student of Nancy Simpson for years and her writing has blossomed.

Coffee with the Poets will be held in a new venue, Blue Mountain Restaurant corner of Hwy 141 and US 64 Alternate near the Murphy Medical Center across from Tri-County College in Cherokee County. Come out and support this event and enjoy Linda's reading. Open mic is held after the reading so guests are invited to bring a poem or a short prose piece to share. Those who just want to listen are most welcome as well. Stay for lunch. The food is good at Blue Mountain. 

This writing event has been sponsored by North Carolina Writers' Network West, chapter of the state literary organization, NCWN since 2007.
