POETRY READING CELEBRATES LIVE FESTIVAL RECORDING AT AUGUST AHA POETRY SLAM PLANNED FOR SEPTEMBER
This year, taking a page from the Astoria Fisher Poets Gathering, poets, prose writers, and songwriters are invited to craft an original, new piece incorporating the following phrase: “Fishing, it’s in the blood”. Participants will share their piece at the Working Waterfront Festival’s Fisherpoetry Finale on Sunday, September 30th at 4:00 p.m. on the Steamship Stage. The audience will choose the winner who will take home a Festival t-shirt and copy of the Something Fishy CD.
The Working Waterfront Festival is a project of the Community Economic Development Center of Southeastern MA, a non-profit organization. The FREE festival, a family friendly, educational celebration of New England's commercial fishing industry, features live maritime and ethnic music, fishermen's contests, fresh seafood, vessel tours, author readings, cooking demonstrations, kid's activities and more. It all takes place in New Bedford, MA, America's #1 fishing port, on the last full weekend of September. Navigate to us at www.workingwaterfrontfestival.org.
