      --Our friends at ConstantPoetry.com are working on
      the video footage from that highly successful show
      we did, Whole Lotta Love and Mercury Cafe. Soon
      the entire show will be available for video
      viewing on the internet. ChicagoPoetry.com just
      keeps on going, dunnunit.

      ChicagoPoetry.com's own CJ Laity was recently
      voted in as the newest member of the prestigious
      Poets Club of Chicago. He will be one of many
      poets performing in a Poetry Wheel at the Harold
      Washington Public Library Poetry Fest on the
      morning / afternoon of Saturday, April 28. Later
      that evening ChicagoPoetry.com will present its
      annual National Poetry Month Celebration at
      Mercury Cafe. An open call to poets to perform in
      the Mercury show will arrive in a future email.
