The Beat Festival is a culmination of projects, poets, performers and artists that I’ve been involved with over the last year as laureate with Portsmouth Poet Laureate Program and an awareness and fundraising event for the three organizations that I’ve done poetry classes with. All proceeds from ticket sales and raffle will go to Safe Harbor Recovery Center in Portsmouth for people in recovery, The Chase Home for Children in Portsmouth for at-risk youth and the International Institute of New England in Manchester helping refugees and immigrants in New Hampshire. Representatives from each of these organizations will on hand to give us more info on their important work.
Check out this flyer to see more info on JerriAnne Boggis, Alice B. Fogel, Scott Plante, Kris Ringman, Catherine Stewart, Amanda Whitworth, Jonathan Stoker, Alicia Fisher, Laila Ruffin El, Rebecca Allsop and Angela Whiting who will all be on the 3S stage for the festival. https://tribepoetry.files.wordpress.com/2018/03/beatfestposter4.jpg
