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. We generally read original poetry, old classics, and occasionally stories as well, interspersing our reading with plenty of good conversations. Join us and bring something you’ve written or another favorite you’d like to share.

We usually hold our readings at several small cafés in Maryland and Pennsylvania, though we hold some of our readings in our homes, or the homes of friends. If you’re unable to attend the readings in the Maryland or Pennsylvania, and you’d like to hold an event in another location, contact us and we’d be glad to help advertise for you.

Upcoming Readings

Hear ye! Hear ye!

A Party is to be held October the 8th of this year. 

The October poetry reading will be held Saturday, October 8th from 5-8. The Curator is collaborating with Lily Eby to make this a joint poetry reading and Hobbit party. It will be adventurous!

Poetry, Bonfire, Food and all things Middle Earth will be happening at the Cabin on the Mountain. Archers, bring your bows. Poets, bring your poems. Travelers, bring your tales.

We welcome you to dress in your Middle Earth best. Bring food or beverage to share, ideally of a Middle Earth sort. You may also bring fare to cook over the fire. (Please bring the necessary pots and pans if you do so.) Don’t forget your blankets and chairs! Musical instruments and other festive contributions are also welcome. 

The Cabin cannot be accessed by any craft which you possess, so you must let your host know you’re coming and arrive at 2301 Beans Cove Rd. Clearville, Pa 15535, by 5 o’clock which will be the rendezvous point.  Lily Eby is your host and can be reached at 814-585-1108.

See you there!
