Poetry in the Boro | Andrea Spofford and Frank Frizzy Sykes

Poetry in the Boro is a monthly open mic for poets and spoken word artists. Hosted by Poetry in the Boro and Murfreesboro Little Theatre.

Our features will be poet Andrea Spofford and spoken word artist Frank Frizzy Sykes.

Andrea Spofford is poetry editor of Zone 3 Press and teaches at Austin Peay State University. Her poems and essays appear in Cimarron Review, The Account, inter|rupture, New South, and other journals.

Frank Frizzy Sykes is a self-described “country boy” from Columbia, TN. The former law enforcement officer has become known in the area both for his own work and for his role in producing Poboys and Poets Nashville.

Readers can share ONE piece of poetry, spoken word, or even short short prose. Reading a favorite poem by another writer is fine, too. If a piece is over 4 minutes, please speak to the hosts to see if they can accommodate that.

We will especially cheer for poems that include one or more of this month’s challenge words, which were determined by our November audience: 1974 | touchdown | sparkle | aqueduct | fire | rush | pass | deliver | goldfish | conserve | prodigal.
