Bryan Roessel – October 2012 Featured Poet

We return to McGeary’s on Monday, October 29, just a couple of days before Halloween, for another edition of Poets Speak Loud with this month’s featured poet Bryan Roessel. We first met Bryan at the second Nitty Gritty Slam last September where he came in second place right behind Elizag. Since then we have worked with Bryan for a special pre-Nationals slam in Suffern that he organized with teams from New Jersey, White Plains, and Albany.

Here is how he describes himself:

Bryan Roessel is a poet/science teacher with the most attractive beard you’ve ever seen. In addition to hosting a monthly poetry slam in Suffern, NY, he competed at the 2012 National Poetry Slam on the White Plains team. His poetry is mostly about girls, sadness, and rocks.

For a preview of what you can expect at Poets Speak Loud, head on over to Bryan’s poets page.

Each month you will be able to read more about the Poets Speak Loud featured poet by going to and going to the Featured Poet section.

Poets Speak Loud is a monthly open mic for poetry and spoken word with a featured poet hosted by local poet Mary Panza at McGeary’s (4 Clinton Square, Albany) in downtown Albany on the last Monday of each and every month.

Sign-up for the open mic is 7:00pm, we start around 8pm
