October events, and a prompt

The prompt for Saturday, October 19 is from KK: "Wrapped in plastic and floating down the river." Here are a few of the literary events happening around the area - ours, and those being put on by our friends or like-minded individuals!

Thursday, October 17: Northeastern Pennsylvania Writers' Collective presents Third Thursday Poetry Night Open Mic at The Vintage, 326 Spruce Street, Scranton - featuring Dead Poets! Come dressed as your favorite dead poet and recite some of their poetry FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE! Or come as yourself and show those spirits that the living can hold their own when it comes to poetry! All are welcome. Admission is free. Signups begin at 8:00 PM, poetry at 8:30 PM, supernatural phenomena shortly thereafter.
