OPEN READ: Read 3 poems, or read for 5 minutes, whichever is briefer.
Read your own work, or work written by someone else. Fiction, non-fiction, play scripts, and screenplay excerpts are also welcome.
The garage is OPEN AND FREE on weekends. It is about a five-minute walk from the 49 West Coffehouse.
The garage is right across from the St. John’s College auditorium. Turn on to St. John’s St. off of College Ave., OR come straight down Rowe Blvd. from Rt. 50, then turn left at the light at Calvert St., and then left on St. John St.
Here’s a link with the St. John’s St. garage’s location and the walking route to 49 West Cafe.
