We put the fun back in poetry and have been doing so for over 12 years!
It's the unique poetry, the wacky MCs, the interactive games. Veteran poets of our reading have published over 20 volumes of poetry, done national tours, won national competitions and been featured on National Public Radio (NPR) multiple times.
We're the home of countless open mic poets, run a merchandise table for poets who read each week and we feature poets from all over the country when they're in the area.
We're also the "locker room" for Columbus's nationally-lauded National Poetry Slam team as well as the Midwest Poetry Slam League team (The Columbus Thunderpants). We have also hosted the annual Rust Belt Regional Poetry competition numerous times.
