Submit to the Winter Water Chapbook!

After the success of last year’s chapbook about magpies, we’re ready to try again! This year’s theme is Winter Water. Send us your poetic interpretation of the theme. Use any style or format you want (though no epics, it is a chapbook).

All submitted poems will be included in the chapbook (one poem per contributor), all contributors will receive a free copy, and the book will sell for $10 with all proceeds going toward the Stroll of Poets.

If you have a poem to submit, please send it as a word document to Markus Eymann at by November 30, 2018.

Dead Poets’ Haven 2018

Ven, come, El Día de Los Muertos nears. Light your bonfires, hang your lanterns, prepare your masks. We are set to gather for an afternoon of verse written or inspired by poets who have passed. An open mic awaits. Do not be afraid. Spirits may haunt but will not stay.

Everyone is welcome.

2018-19 Haven Season Launch

Come and play with the Stroll at the launch of our 2018-19 Haven season! Make it musical — bring an instrument (or a friend with one). Or come as a band! Come with a painting that inspires you or a poem about playing! It will be an all evening open mic so get your game on!
Monday, September 17th, 7pm at the Upper Crust Cafe.

2018-19 Haven Season is here!
