A City Full of Literary Talent

The cornerstone of our community is our reading series. Held monthly in local bars, cafes, and other small businesses around the city, the series gives both emerging and established writers in a variety of genres the opportunity to read their work aloud and hear the work of their peers in a comfortable environment, without the formal structure of more traditional outlets. Each reading event features one celebrated writer from the region (including Pulitzer Prize winners and poet laureates) alongside up to nine local writers in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Featured readers read up to 15 minutes, while our regular readers read for five minutes each, giving the audience a taste of their writing style.
