Erin Maidman Features at Palabra!
an evening of poetry hosted by Ted Washington
Featured reader Erin Mcknight Maidman
Erin Maidman is best known for her acrylic paintings that carry colorful vignettes from her internal world. Maidman is a 26 year old Phoenix Arizona born painter, muralist, poet and frame maker, fluent in Spanish and English residing in San Diego, California. She has been painting for 14 years and specializes in acrylic, charcoal, colored pencil and graphite mediums. She is an introvert, but she has a sea of feeling within her that she expresses best through her artwork and poetry. When she is not creating artwork or writing out her feelings, Erin is a caring Certified Nurse’s Aide for patients who are elderly, disabled or undergoing rehabilitation. Erin’s purpose in writing poetry is to expel her emotions from her soul and help others feel less alone in their rawest emotions as well.
After the featured reading we will have an open mic for anyone who wants to read. Everyone is welcome to come and share a poem, song lyrics, reading or a short story or just bring your ears for listening and enjoy the evening. Original poetry is always appreciated. Everyone needs some place to speak their minds and Palabra is that place. We are an inclusive and supportive group that aim to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, positive environment, so all talent levels are welcome.
Doors open at 6:30pm and Poetry starts at 7:00pm sharp! We will have a sign-up sheet available at the counter. Each poet will speak for 3-5 minutes each so that everyone who wants to read can have a chance! Palabra poetry night will be every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.
