Scott Bird, well, Scott Bird is Scott Bird! A poet! A visual artist, as well.

You can read in the open mic that follows the featured reader. If you’re a poet. Or aspire to be one!

Michael Koch and Jerry Ferraz book and host the reading series and conduct the open mic that follows the featured readers.

we offer the featured poets and is certainly appreciated.

BYOB, proof of vax & masks!
