The Poets Speak Loud open mic series continues at McGeary’s in downtown Albany on Monday, February 24, with featured reader Glenn Cassidy.
Glenn Cassidy teaches courses in finance and economics at the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy at the University at Albany at SUNY. He has a Ph.D. in public policy analysis, and his poetry and short fiction often draw on his formal study of human behavior. Editors at Main Street Rag, Wild Goose Poetry Review, The Dead Mule School of Southern Poetry, Red Headed Stepchild, and other journals have been entertained enough to publish forty of his poems and short stories. Three of his poems have been awarded honorable mention or runner-up from the NC Poetry Society, and two of his short stories have been semi-finalists for the Brenda L. Smart Fiction Prize.
Poets Speak Loud is Albany Poets’ long-running monthly open mic for poetry and spoken word with a featured poet hosted by local poet Mary Panza at McGeary’s (4 Clinton Square) in downtown Albany on the last Monday of each and every month.
Sign-up for the open mic is 7:00 pm, we start at 8 pm.
