The Palace Poetry Group is an open group whose mission is to help poets find their poetic voices and in so doing encourage each other. Poets and all who appreciate poetry are welcome to attend.
Join the Palace Poetry Group for a poetry reading by a featured speaker every month followed by an open mic.
Palace Poetry Group welcomes back Benita Rogers, a former actress and ballet teacher as well as a talented poet. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Benita uses words in a simple, creative fashion to draw us into her visions of beauty. Her poetry often uses nature as part of her expression of ideas in a unique and sometimes breath-taking manner.
Her poetry has been published in The Muse, Stone Canoe, and the Veterans Anthology. Her awards include one from the National League of Americna Pen Women.
Co-founder of the Malius Greenspace Coalition, Benital is an ardent environmentalist and lives in Manlius with her husband, Angelo Puccia, a painter and sculptor.
Open mic follows the featured reader.
