Poetry Reading for
San Francisco Peace & Hope
Open mic followed by featured readers
“Sign-up for the open mic begins at 7pm. The open mic begins as soon as that is over and a few announcements are made. So we are usually underway by 7:10 or 7:15. The feature usually goes on about an hour later.”

SAN FRANCISCO PEACE AND HOPE
San Francisco Peace and Hope is proud to announce a poetry reading celebrating the first anniversary of its online magazine debut in San Francisco on June 6, 2012, featuring readings by AL YOUNG, , poet-host DAN BRADY, MARVIN HIEMSTRA, TANYA JOYCE, KIT KENNEDY, and KEN SAFFRAN. Founding editor ELIZABETH HACK and creative director NIYA C. SISK will comment on the evolution of SF Peace and Hope, and where the exciting online journal now stands.
Informed by the idealism of the 1960s, San Francisco Peace and Hope is a continuing labor of love produced by the poets and visual artists of the Bay Area. For the new edition — which launched Friday, May 18, 2012 — advisor Al Young, California’s former poet laureate, has updated his One Two-Step Foreword. Writer and web designer Niya C. Sisk of Ritual Labs and Niya’s Place, has freshened the journal’s cool look.
