The program will begin with a brief introduction of the genesis behind the Cape Cod Poetry Review, a regional literary journal which aims to showcase writers from the Cape and Islands. The first part of the discussion will center around the connected history of the lit journal's origins within open mics throughout the mid-Cape, the journal's subsequent birth, and its struggles for funding throughout the three issues. Editors M.L. Wolters and John Bonanni will then introduce short readings from five poets who have been featured in the journal: Alice Kociemba, Gregory Hischak, Lauren Wolk, Mary Ellen Redmond, and Barry Hellman.
