As in past years, each selected poet will have 2-3 minutes on stage (maximum). The deadline for signing up is March 1st or when the list is full (up to 30 readers). Invariably some people can’t attend due to sickness or other obligations, so we have a new feature this year – think The Price is Right! If you want to share your work but didn’t get on the list, your name will be put in the pot for a drawing at the event. So show up and be prepared to Come on Down!

We are lucky enough to have accompaniment by Gaelynn Lea on violin and Richie Townsend on guitar!

This year the event will be held at Sacred Heart Music Center on Monday, May 2nd from 7:30-9:00pm.

Expect a detailed follow-up email shortly after the deadline with a list of poets in the order they will be reading.

  • Deadline to apply: March 1, 2016
