Poet and writer R.M. Engelhardt will be the featured reader 2017 Albany Word Fest edition of the Albany Poets Presents reading series at Restaurant Navona (89 New Scotland Avenue, Albany) on Wednesday, April 19, 2017.

Albany Poets Presents puts a spin on the typical poetry event in the local literary community by highlighting one poet every two months with an interview and Q&A session following the reading.

“For the Word Fest edition of Albany Poets Presents, it makes perfect sense to invite the founder of Albany Poets and the guy who organized the first three events.”, host Thom Francis says. “It will be great to hear Rob’s work and then take the time to talk about the history of the Word Fest, what made him want to start the annual event, and what the event’s impact is on the area.

R.M. Engelhardt is a veteran poet and writer whose work over the years has appeared in many journals and magazines including Rusty Truck, Thunder Sandwich, The Boston Literary Review, The New York Times, Full of Crow, Dry Land Lit, The Outlaw Poetry Network, Telepoem and in many others. He is one of the original co-founders of Albany Poets and is currently the host of the Troy Poetry Mission, a monthly open mic for poets held in Troy, NY.
