Poetry@TECH Fall 2020 reading lineup announced

Dear Friends of P@T--

Hope you and yours are well and thriving. Ilya and I are excited to announce the Fall 2020 lineup of readings at Poetry@Tech. This season will be the first in nearly twenty years where we will not be able to come together in person for the events, but we're excited about seeing you at each of our virtual readings. We'll be posting the links to each event as the date nears. But for now, check out our EVENTS page to see who's reading this fall at P@T.

Just let me know if you have any questions at all.

Only Good Things,

Travis & Ilya
