Free and open to the public
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 and curated by Robert Clark. Each reading begins with a featured poet, followed by an open mic. On January 3, 2020, First Friday presents Sean Johnson.
From a young age, Sean Johnson developed an insatiable love for the written and spoken word, and has performed throughout the country. Her artwork and poetry have been published in 29 anthologies worldwide, and in 2014 her poem, “Rearview Mirror” was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in Poetry. All My Heroes Were Assassinated is her first full length collection with two of its poems nominated for “Best of the Best” by Edify Fiction and Lunch Ticket, and she was recently nominated for Texas Poet Laureate. In addition to her poetic endeavors, Sean is a painter, teacher, rock star auntie, and a humanitarian known for her monthly outreach to the homeless, disaster relief program, and for her mission work in Africa, Central America, and Peru.
