The Rome Area Council for the Arts is calling on all local poets to be part of Poetry Night's 2008 season.

The poetry readings will be held at Schroeder's New Deli on Broad Street in Rome in the back courtyard, with no cover charge.

This is the 22nd consecutive year for the event, which will take place every fourth Thurday throughout the summer.

Those who are interested in reading original poetry at Poetry Night, or who want more information, may contact the Rome Area Council for the Arts at 706-295-ARTS, or questions may be emailed to schilds@romearts.org.

Poetry night will continue every fourth Thursday throughout the summer.
