Our popular Poets & Writers sponsored events take place in Point Arena, California. Each month’s gathering begins at 7:30 P.M. with an open mic and concludes with a reading by our featured poet. The guest performer generally reads between 20 and 40 minutes.
On Thursday, December 20, at 7:30pm The Third Thursday Poetry & Jazz Reading Series at 215 Main in Point Arena will feature a Solstice Open Mic Reading.
Readings are held at 215 Main, a wine bar/pub in downtown Point Arena. A small jazz combo plays before and after the reading and generally accompanies the local as well as our featured poets (just about all of them elect to read with the band). The usual audience is comprised of regulars (a mix of young and old, and everything in the middle, as well as reflecting our multi-racial community), visitors from points, north and south of Point Arena, plus the smattering of tourists who just happen to stumble upon us. All of our past readers rave about how attentive, responsive, and open our audiences are.
