On Sunday, January 15, 2017, writers and poets across the United States and in Europe came
together for Writers Resist, a “re-inauguration” of our shared commitment to the spirit of
compassion, equality, free speech, and the fundamental ideals of democracy. Writers Resist
events, large and small, were held in dozens of locations throughout the US and the world.
Inspired by long-time SOMOS member, past president, and activist/poet Phyllis Hotch, SOMOS
continues its monthly WRITERS AND POETS RESIST event on the fourth Sunday of each month
from 4-6 pm at the SOMOS Salon. Writers, poets, musicians, songwriters,are invited to read
from and/or perform their work or the work of others, bringing the power of the creative
community to protect and support of our democratic ideals.
If you would like to present some creative work, please contact Bob Silver at
