Inprint is proud to serve as a host for the First Friday Poetry Reading Series. The First Friday Series is the oldest poetry series in Houston and has been held monthly on the first Friday of each month since 1975. The series is coordinated by Robert Clark, not by Inprint. Each reading begins with a featured poet, followed by an open mic

On Friday, January 8, First Friday presents Elina Petrova. Elina has numerous Russian and Ukrainian publication credits and a book of Russian-language poems. She is a frequent featured reader at Rice University, and her poetry has been published in Texas Poetry Calendar, Illya’s Honey, Harbinger Asylum, FreeFall (Canada), Melancholy Hyperbole, Panoply, and the anthologies of the Houston and Austin poetry festivals. Her first full-length book of poetry in English was published in 2015. She was recently nominated for a Pushcart Prize and was a finalist for the post of 2015 Houston Poet Laureate.
