Featured poets Sharon Olson and Vasiliki Katsarou read from their works for 20 minute each followed by an open-mic session.

Sixteen Rivers Press published her book of poems, “The Long Night of Flying,” in 2006. Olson’s work has appeared in such journals as The Arroyo Literary Review, U.S. 1 Worksheets, and Cider Press Review, which nominated one of her poems for a Pushcart Prize.
