Carlos Reyes is a noted poet, writer and translator. Additionally, he is a book editor and publisher, and often writes freelance reviews of poetry books. When he’s not travelling or staying in his cottage in Ireland, he lives in Portland, Oregon. Of his work Carolyn Kizer has said: Mr. Reyes is one of our local and national treasures. His poetry is as clear and strong as his social conscience. One is always struck by his sensual and sensory qualities: the touch, taste, feel, color of things, and his open mic 2ability to capture a mood, a world, in a handful of lines.

Everyone is invited to take part in the open-mic after the main event, poets, storytellers, musicians and writers . Even if you don’t write you are welcome to bring something along to read. The night begins at 8.00pm and admission is free. So join us on the night and make this event something special.
