Poetry Out Loud in Hattiesburg

A certain kind of carnival of its own, the Poetry Out Loud season has officially begun. I’m honored to serve as one of the three judges for today’s Southern Regional contest, based at the Hattiesburg Arts Commission’s downtown office. For any in the area, the contest will be featuring contestants from area high schools — open to the public, and a great deal of fun, the show kicks off at noon. Hope to see you there.
