Poetry Readings

Our monthly poetry readings are a place where readers and writers can get together in a friendly space and enjoy literature. We think that good coffee, good food, and good books make for a very worthwhile afternoon. Our readings help to create a community of those who care about meaningful literature, particularly about Anabaptist literature. We generally read original poetry, old classics, and occasionally stories as well, interspersing our reading with discussions and writing exercises. Join us and bring something to read!

We hold our readings at several small cafés in Pennsylvania and Maryland. Here is our schedule for the next few months (note that times differ from place to place):
