Join poets Rich Murphy, Steve Welch & Sam Mesiti, for an afternoon of poetry reading.

The Body Politic by Rich Murphy is the winner of the 2013 Prize Americana from the American Popular Culture Association. Rich writes poetry that is "intelligent, critical, incisive and satrical.  His poems examine - with unflinching honesty - not only what it means to be human but also what it means to be an American." Rich has taught poetry and writing at several colleges and universities in the U.S. He currently resides in Marblehead, MA.

Sam Mesiti grew up in North Andover, Massachusetts and attended Bradford College, Bradford, MA. He has been a student of poetry for several years and also fortunate enough to both learn and participate in this creative writing process with Rich Murphy. Some of the writers he follows include A.R. Ammons, Charles Simic, Rita Dove and James Tate. He has authored a chapterbook of poetry entitled Backbones and Millstones and his work has appeared in Harbinger Asylum.

Steve Welch grew up in Haverhill and is a freelance writer and editor.  He has published stories and essays in various journals, including Denver Magazine, Bloomsbury Review, and Anthropophagy. Steve has also taught fiction writing at several colleges and universities in the U.S.
