Norway Arts Festival ‘Poets On The Porch’ Celebration Disrupted When Poets Can’t Tell if Audience Is Applauding or Swatting Flies

Norway Arts Festival

Norway Arts FestivalNORWAY — The Norway Arts Festival promises “something for everyone” this year. Kicking off the three-day event is the Poets on the Porch celebration and 10th anniversary of this annual poets event. This year’s Poets on the Porch reading – fondly referred to as POP X – will take place at 7 p.m., Thursday, July 12 at Norway Memorial Library. Admission is free. This reading promises to be particularly interesting and fun, because festival organizers have made Poets on the Porch this year’s focus figure. Each year the Norway Arts Festival chooses a person, place, organization, or image that pulls the dimensions of the Festival together and celebrates the present and history of the Oxford Hills. Poets on the Porch has been part of the Norway Arts Festival since 2003, and at this year’s event, a dozen local poets will each give two five-minute readings. (read more at the Advertiser Democrat)
