Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic Night

Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic Night gives voice to the words on the page at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 9, at Angst Gallery. The evening is open to anyone with poetry to share; sign-ups start at 6:30 and last until the show starts at 7 p.m. The featured guests this month are Laura LeHew and R.R. Seitz. Nibbles and wine will be provided by Angst’s next-door neighbor, Niche Wine Bar.

LeHew’s collections include Becoming, Willingly Would I Burn, It’s Always Night, It Always Rains, and Beauty. Laura received her MFA from CCA. She edits a small press called Uttered Chaos. LeHew always thought she’d be an astronaut, but life is funny that way, and now, instead of exploring the space between worlds, she’s exploring the space between words.

R.R. Seitz writes from the place of decisions made by an eighteen-year-old that carry forward, day-by-day, to the present. (But then, who doesn’t?) His 2006 book about a sniper in Vietnam, Right Here Right Now, is in its third printing and has made its way to many places outside the U.S. He has been featured at various readings throughout the Northwest for 15 years.

Angst Gallery is located at 1015 Main St. in downtown Vancouver. For more information, visit To learn more about the monthly Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic Nights, visit or contact Christopher Luna at or 360-910-1066.
