Writers Read / Hilltowns

Bring Your Poetry! Bring Your Prose! Find Your Public! Uplift Our Souls!

Here’s how it works: A featured writer reads recent work and describes the journey to publication, followed by audience Q & A. Then the floor opens to other writers—published or not—for five minutes each. Hint: If you want to read, put your name in the hat before 3:15!
