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

January 21 | 2-4pm

All are welcome to share in an afternoon of poetry in Holmes County, Ohio! Bring a poem that recently inspired you. Better yet, bring your own poem! Works in progress and carefully edited poems are all welcome. 

The Poetry Reading will be held at Carita Keim’s apartment at 4225 State Route 39, Millersburg, Ohio  44654. The apartment can be accessed on the back side of the red brick ranch house. Please park behind the Keim Electric shop or the house. 

Tea and coffee and refreshments will be provided. Feel free to bring any happy additions.
