Open Mic Featuring Jim Jordan

Just Poet Jim Jordan is our featured poet. Come for another great night of poetry and fellowship at Before Your Quiet Eyesone of the best independent bookstores in the city! And, of course, bring some poems of your own to share during the open mic portion of the event.

Jim Jordan has long been fascinated by poetry, poets and their craft, but is a relative newcomer to writing. He joined Just Poets in 2015 after meeting members David Delaney and Eric Rounds at a sonnet workshop. He has a poem in the Just Poets 2016 anthology, Le Mot Juste, and another in the forthcoming anthology for 2017. He recently had two poems published in the collection Birdsong. He has begun to collect rejections for poems submitted to journals, which can be an important step in becoming a poet. In previous lives, Jim has been a pilot and professor/consultant (economics).
