Coast poet Blake More will be the featured reader for the September Writers Read. A resident of the Mendocino Coast since the late 90s, Blake is a healing artist with many creative voices and expressions, including writing, video, performance, dance, costume, functional art (such as large murals and hand-painted, daily-use art cars), and teaching. She hosts a monthly radio show called B More Now on KZYX&Z FM, and also works with California Poets in the Schools and the California Arts Council to deliver creative arts instruction in K-12 classrooms around the Northern California region. Her freelance writings have appeared in dozens of magazines, including Yoga Journal, Utne Reader and Tokyo Time Out. Blake has written two non-fiction books, one fiction book, and three books of poetry.

Blake will go on at 7:00 PM. Open mic follows from 8:00 to 9:00. Writers Read is always free, though donations gladly accepted.
