Virtual Open Mics: Focus Texas

Virgogray Press

Greetings fellow poets and poetry readers. Because of circumstances beyond our control, many poets and writers have been unable to meet at their regularly scheduled open mics and reading events, depriving us of that much needed social exposure and aural literary nourishment.
