about the event

Calling all poetry lovers. Come join us in an evening of sharing poetry 7 pm - 9 pm, Wednesday, May 31 at the Greenroom.

Névé Dumas our featured reader will kick off the evening by sharing a selection of her work.

Following Névé's reading there will be the opportunity to read your own work, share a favourite poem, or simply enjoy listening to the spoken word. If you'd like to read, check in as you arrive and sign up to read a maximum of two poems (two of your favourites, one favourite and one of yours, or two of your own). To give as many people as possible the opportunity to read, there will be a time limit of 5 minutes per reader.

This event is by donation, suggested $10-20
