J.S. Lee is a poet first; she has assumed the role of organizer out of necessity. “There was a need to keep poetry going in the city and there has been a bit of transition in regards to the people who organize these types of events…Our group really didn’t want to see it [Poetry in downtown RVA] go away so we are doing all we can to keep our event going here at Art 6.” I finally met J.S. Lee on my visit to River City Secrets a few weeks ago. The top level of Art 6 provided a personal setting for the evening that featured poetry by Lance Kelley, music by Zek Lightning, and an open mic of RVA poets. I got the sense immediately that this group takes their poetry very serious — though their were light moments (and a few light poems) – the evening had a seriousness and a maturity to it that distinguishes it as a good event for poets who want to take their writing to the next level.
