Philip Martin — the Little Rock-based columnist, critic and all-round wordsmith — is the feature for the Sept. 27 program of the Ozark Poets and Writers Collective. The program is at Nightbird Books and begins at 7 p.m.
“Martin has won more than 40 regional and national awards for his columns at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, has authored three books, co-authored a fourth, and has even recorded three albums,” writes Richard Massey in a profile of Martin in the Sept. 22, 2016, edition of the Fayetteville Free Weekly. The article includes a number of details about Martin’s life and artistic career.
OPWC’s monthly programs are free but donations are welcome. Audience members are invited to participate in our open mic sessions, which precede and follow the featured writer. All ages are welcome to this public event, but the Collective does not censor and any speaker may well address mature subjects using raw language.
