  • This event has passed.

Come along to the Down Home to read your work and listen to some fine local wordsmiths.
Sign up sheet opens at 6:40 and the readings begin at 7 sharp.
Our reading lists have been filling up quickly, so please arrive early to get on the list. It is first come, first serve. We will have two rounds of about ten readers per round, eighteen readers total.
We are trying to be better with time management, so please note that each poet gets up to 4 minutes. This includes any extra things you may want to say about your poem. We encourage you to practice your piece so you know how long it is, or take your phone up to the stage with you to keep track. We will notify you if you go over time.
If you can’t make it this time, remember that our Open Hoots are every third Wednesday of the month. We will always have event pages if you need to double check that date.
