Welcome Poets!   Join us for an evening of poetry and discussion on Thursday evening, Jan 9th at 6:30pm.  

We are delighted to kick-off this year's Newtown Bookshop Poetry Group meeting with featured poet, Cleveland Wall. Be sure to check-out Cleveland's interview posted on to learn more about her poetry and upcoming plans! 


Cleveland Wall is a poet, editor, and teaching artist in Bethlehem, PA. She is one half of the poetry/guitar duo The Starry Eyes, a founding member of the poetry improv group No River Twice, and cohost of Tuesday Muse, a monthly performance series at Bethlehem's Ice House. Her first book, Let X=X, is just out from Kelsay Books.  

The first half of the monthly meeting is devoted to a reading by a featured poet from the group or by a published poet. The second half hour allows open mike time for group members to share a few poems they've written, or they may choose to read poems written by their favorite poets.  In the future, we may include poetry workshops to the group's activities.  If you are interested in sharing a collection of poems, please email Lynn at .

The meeting will be facilitated by Lynn Fanok, who has written a collection of poems about her experiences as a survivor’s daughter examining her family, memory, and history. Her poetry has appeared in Burnt Bridge and other journals. Lynn holds degrees in English from The Pennsylvania State University and Arcadia University. You'll find some of her poetry at
