POETRIO Event Proposal
Poetrio is the Malaprop's poetry event that most reliably attracts an enthusiastic and attentive audience. At Poetrio, we host three different poets each month, and the event takes place on the first Sunday of the month, always at 3:00 p.m. It lasts for about an hour. The Poetrio poets have all published, ordinarily within the year previous to the event, and they read by invitation only. They always seem to enjoy reading together and becoming acquainted with one another if they haven't yet met. Because of Asheville’s reputation as a "writers' home," we usually have several additional poets in the audience, as well as many other "regulars" who are eager to welcome and hear new poets each month -- or to welcome back poets whose work they know and who will present new work. Our audience seems most interested in hearing poets read from their most recent work, and we like to feature one book for each poet at each event.

We promote the Poetrio events in our printed events calendars, circulated locally and mailed to state visitor centers in Western North Carolina; on our website (www.malaprops.com) and in a variety of print and social media; to 7,000 readers on our general events e-mail list; and to over 400 readers on our targeted poetry e-mail list.
