NORWICH – The 21st Annual Colorscape Chenango event is fast approaching, as is the poetry slam, a popular event among Colorscape attendees.
This year the annual Colorscape festival in downtown Norwich will happen on the weekend of Sept. 12-13. The poetry slam will take place on from 2-5 p.m., Saturday Sept. 12 at the Park Place Restaurant and Lounge.
“No registration deadline. Slots will remain open until we fill the maximum number, which is 15. Poets may even register at the slam if there is still space. I strongly encourage local poets to register. There are still slots available,” said Richard Bernstein, founder of Colorscape’s Poetry Slam and Norwich High School English teacher.
This year’s annual Colorscape Poetry Slam will feature three poets, along with many other participants. The three poets featured will be William Stratton, Kristen Tomanocy, and Richard Bernstein, each of which will be reading for about 30 minutes.
