Poets Storm Nietzsche’s

In Buffalo, Allentown is the land of poets. The various venues have always been supportive of the arts, which is one of the reasons that the art/poetry scene proliferates in this city. Recently, Nietzsche’s has become a place where numerous poets have turned up, to battle it out each month. What started off as a friendly interchange between contemporary poets, has now become a serious affair, drawing more poets together to wield their words for the betterment of self and community.

What started as one skirmish on the west end of Allen has turned into a monthly battle royale of Buffalo’s contemporary poets. Twenty-nine poets have stormed Nietzsche’s in the last four months and in July we’re bringing in more.

Chuck Joy (Erie, PA, Author of Said the Growling Dog)
Ellen Lutnick (Author of Gross, CWP Fall ’16)
Cee Willams (Former poet laureate of Erie County, PA)
Ian Brunner (Author of Ruminations, CWP ’17)
Halley Marie Shaw (published in Ground & Sky Quarterly)
More TBA

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
