Each month different poets present their new works in a public setting to an ever-changing audience. It is an opportunity to hear new words and voices.

Readers and presenters come from all walks of literary life: some are published authors; some are translators; some are first time authors with a piece of work in progress to test; while others will read/present a bilingual writing of another author. Over the years, more than 1000 different poets, translators and open readers have participated in the program.

The regular format allows for feature presenters, reading up to 20 minutes each.

There is also an open mic section for those wanting to share their lovely words for just five minutes each. Please do not hesitate to come forward to ask to read.

Held on the third Saturday of each month.
