In celebration of National Poetry Month, Oliver Art Center will host its 2017 Spring Read on Thursday April 6, 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Last year’s event was greatly attended and enjoyed by all who read and listened. We are looking forward to hearing many new short works read by well-known local authors and some fresh faces. Do you have some original poetry or prose you would like to read at the Oliver Art Center’s Spring Read? If so, please join us on April 6, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm in the main gallery of the art center where we will enjoy listening to talented writers from our region and beyond. If you would like to read, please submit your work before March 30 to firstname.lastname@example.org in line with these guidelines:
All writing must be the original work of the reader.
Each reading is limited to 5 minutes. This is typically 2-3 poems or 500-600 words of prose. If you’re not sure you can read your work in 5 minutes, time yourself.
Writing can be on any subject, but should be suitable for a “family” audience.
The first 15 readers whose work meets this criteria will make up our Spring program. We will have another reading in the Fall.
We welcome the friends and families of readers to join us, along with anyone who enjoys literature. Event is free and open to the public.
