Several of them will be reading their winning, honorably mentioned or finalist poems from the contest's annual anthology Off Channel (Midwest Writing Center Press). Off Channel will be released Thursday, October 4th at 6:00 p.m. at the Midwest Writing Center (225 E. 2nd St., Suite 303, Davenport), and will feature readings from local poets published in the anthology. The event will be free and open to the public, and copies of Off Channel will be available for purchase at a discount.
